“Embracing possibilities beyond disabilities” is the philosophy of Aaron’s Acres. Aaron's Acres hopes to provide all children and young adults with special needs opportunities to participate in the most innovative and unique social and recreational programs in an atmosphere of acceptance that embraces the child and family. The organization aims to provide individuals with special needs ages 5-21 year-round therapeutically based age-appropriate recreational programs directed by specially trained and certified staff in a supportive environment that enhances socialization and communication skills. Emotional, educational, and recreational support is offered for the entire family.

This organization is about connecting with children of all different abilities and their families. Aaron’s Acres focuses on the entire family throughout the year in that the organization provides various programs and activities to all of the members of the families. It is about partnering with people of all ages and experiences. One parent said it best when she said, “Aaron’s Acres – what a wonderful place! Camp has enriched our lives in so many ways…”

Due to tremendous need expressed by families within all three counties, the number of camp weeks, as well as the number of participants, has doubled in recent years. Today, eleven weeks of camp across all three counties serve over 200 participants.
