Summer Camp (K-6)

*** Not offered in 2017! ***

We are preparing for our expansion to High School, and apologize for the inconvenience!

Themes

Our 4 week summer camp program combines the fun of typical summer day camp activities with the benefits of evidence-based social skill instruction and supports.  Each week we will have a different theme to allow children to focus and learn about a topic, while also expanding their interests and abilities.  There will be age-appropriate activities planned for each theme in the areas of art, dance, music, drama, science, recreation/games, social skills, and community.

This year we are excited to add field trips to our list of summer camp fun!  Each week, kids will visit a community attraction related to the theme of the week.  Parent/caregiver transportation and supervision may be required.
