The urge to travel, explore the world and discover new places has never been more popular. Yet, for individuals with Autism, Asperger’s, developmental disabilities or other special needs, the prospect of traveling, for the thrill of it all, presents a myriad of obstacles, challenges and very few options.

“Why shouldn’t people, regardless of their clinical label, have the opportunities that others have to see the world, make friends and live life,” asks Scott Fineman, M.S.W., director and founder of Frontier Travel Camp.

For the past 26 years, Fineman, a champion and advocate for special needs individuals, has been leading groups of special needs young adults around the world. Frontier Travel Camp was established in 1997 specifically as a luxury, special needs tour operator. The company prides itself on offering the best, supervised travel experiences in a secure and exciting environment for travelers with varying learning disabilities, developmental disabilities, and/or other difficulties who require more supervision and guidance than the mainstream traveler.

Since its inception, Frontier Travel Camp and its highly specialized team of compassionate counselors and social workers have led cruises and tours to more than 35 states, Australia, Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, Italy, England, Scotland, Russia, the Baltics, Scandinavia, the Mediterranean Sea and more.

“We have rafted down some of the best rivers in the west, hiked on some of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world and explored some of the most interesting cities and national parks,” said Fineman.

Make Friends, See the World, Live Life!

According to Fineman, group trips are an ideal way to experience independence, improve social skills and increase self-esteem.  “We offer experiences that give our travelers more than just priceless memories. They return home empowered by their newfound independence, confident in their ability to make new friends and proud of their efforts.”

What makes Frontier Travel Camp truly special is their hand-picked staff dedicated to each travelers’ individual needs, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Counselors are chosen based upon strict criteria which includes their education, personality and experience.

“There’s a reason we have endured. We give families peace of mind in knowing that their traveler is in good hands.  This explains why we have close to a 90% return rate year after year,” said Fineman.
