Summer camp is a valuable experience for everyone. Our individualised and structured activities allow campers to feel secure. Campers are introduced to new skills and activities in a precise and consistent manner by staff that are trained by special education and therapy professionals; they are encouraged to participate with counselors and fellow campers using positive reinforcement and praise.

The camp setting is ideal for learning and generalizing social skills. Campers live in groups that vary in size from three to eight campers. The low counselor-to-camper ratio of 1:1, 1:2 or 1:3 allows staff members to ensure that all campers participate in each of the daily activities to the maximum possible extent. Music, drama, arts & crafts and swimming are always among the favorites.

One of the main purposes of summer camp is to have fun participating in safely designed activities, appropriate for a wide-range of ability levels. The learning and organisational strategies being taught at home and in school are reinforced in our fun and relaxed environment. Each camper participates in a wide range of activities that are designed to enhance social skills, and be both fun and challenging. 

Counselors ensure that every camper experiences success in each activity. This enables us to improve the self-esteem of the individual, and enhances their individual abilities.
