AUBURN — Pine Tree Society is hosting an informational session about Pine Tree Camp from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 14, at 368 Minot Ave.

The session is geared toward parents or family members of children with development or physical disabilities who are hesitant to send them to camp.

The session will explore all that Pine Tree Camp has to offer at the 285-acre campus on North Pond. Pine Tree Camp offers a barrier-free environment that allows all campers to actively participate in outdoor activities such as swimming, hiking, boating and fishing.

No camper has ever been turned away due to an inability to pay and 99 percent of Pine Tree Camp families receive full or partial scholarships.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet camp Director Dawn Willard-Robinson, as well as other parents who will share their personal experiences. Participants will have plenty of opportunities to get all questions answered.

Pine Tree Camp welcomes campers with a wide range of physical and/or intellectual disabilities. There is a wide spectrum of campers, from those needing minimal support to those requiring extensive support in all aspects of daily living. Disabilities the camp has seen include cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, Down syndrome and autism spectrum disorders. Pine Tree Camp also welcomes children who are deaf, blind and have speech challenges.
