Join our summer programs where your child will build relationships, learn and be active, and meet challenges with a smile. All of our staff members have significant experience in their fields and have all of the necessary clearances and background checks successfully in place.

My daughter attended summer camp in 2017 and seemed to have a great time!  Although she is non-verbal, the pictures I saw and reports from Cris and our nurse were that she really enjoyed it.  She liked reading the books with the group and the outside activities they participated in.  It seems like a fun time for all!
