Camp Northwood - A Special Needs Camp

Meet the Camp Director

Camp Northwood, a coed sleepaway camp (ages 8-18), and The Northwood Center, a simulated apartment setting for young adults (ages 16-21), have been making a positive difference in the lives of socially-immature, learning-challenged, and high-functioning autism spectrum campers since 1976. Guided by the leadership of Gordon Felt, a certified special educator, campers benefit from 2-to-1 camper-to-counselor support while exploring more than 30 enriching, enjoyable, non-competitive activities promoting social skills, self-esteem, and independence. Located in the Adirondacks on a 9-mile lake, Northwood is family-owned, independent, and ACA accredited.
