Camp Pine Cone is a day camp for children with physical and/or developmental disabilities, ages 5 to 12. The day camp takes place at Pine Tree Camp’s beautiful 285-acre barrier free facility on North Pond in Rome.
Camp Pine Cone is designed for children with disabilities who could benefit from a summer camp experience, but are not yet ready for overnight camp or who have special needs that make attending overnight camp a challenge.
Camp Pine Cone’s counselor to camper ratio is much lower than traditional day camps, a minimum of one staff to three campers. Children who require one-on-one support may attend with a parent or caregiver.
Our staff are special people who are committed to providing individualized support to each camper so that he or she fully participates in every activity.
