A signature program of Children's Research Triangle is Camp SOAR (Special Outdoor Adaptive Recreation), an overnight camp for children with special needs, ages 7-19. The purpose of camp is two-fold; to offer fun and social activities for the campers and respite for the families. 

Campers are partnered with a one-to-one dedicated volunteer counselor who assists them in making the most of their Camp SOAR experience. Parents know their child is having a wonderful time, making new friends and gaining independence, while in a safe and caring environment.
