RARA SCAMP is a summer camp designed specifically for children and adults with special needs in the Greater Rochester Area. Each summer, 60+ campers attend this day camp for 6 weeks. This camp is licensed by the State of Michigan, requires a 3:1 staff to camper ratio, goes on field trips 2-3 times each week, and also is run out of a local Rochester Elementary School. The general cost out of pocket for families exceeds $1,700 per camper, with a deficit to RARA of close to $40,000 each year. Fundraising is necessary to help to offset this loss each year.
