The Smugglers' Notch Adaptive Program (SNAP) is dedicated to providing therapeutic recreation for children and adults of all abilities in a supportive environment. SNAP experiences are tailored to meet the needs and goals of each individual. The ratio of counselor to camper is based on the individual needs of each person. There is no age limit for the SNAP program. It is our hope that each camper will leave the SNAP program with feelings of self respect, respect for others and nature, and new skills.
The Summer SNAP Program offers a variety of adventure activities ...

"Alisa Anderson, the head of the SNAP program, was wonderful. She was so helpful, really flexible with letting our daughter ease into the program... She also was so friendly and welcoming to our whole family and gave us some great ideas for fun things to do while we were at the resort. Also, the SNAP one-one-one staff person who worked with my daughter was lovely. Our daughter gave her a big smile when we saw her each morning and a big hug goodbye each afternoon. We were very happy with the SNAP program and felt that our daughter was in great hands."
We invite you to read "12 reasons why Smugglers' Notch is special needs family vacation heaven," published in September 2012 on Love That Max, "a blog about kids with special needs who kick butt"!
We also offer an inclusion program in our daily children's programs. This gives a child with a disability the opportunity to socialize with peers while still maintaining the support he or she needs through the SNAP Program.
