Camp Ruggles

Camp Ruggles, a specialized day camp, utilizes a portion of the Irons Homestead campus during six weeks each Summer.  Incorporated in 1974, Camp Ruggles remains Rhode Island’s only therapeutic summer day camp program for children, ages 6-12, who are clinically diagnosed with emotional and behavioral disabilities. Their program is designed specifically for children with significant difficulties in these areas who cannot succeed in a regular camp environment. Their highly structured, case management program emphasizes individual attention, self-esteem building, problem solving and social and physical development, while maintaining an atmosphere that promotes fun and respite from the campers’ daily life.
