Boys who will be entering grades 6th-9th in September 2019 are eligible to attend Summer Trip Camp. An admissions interview is required for all new families as part of the application process as well as a teacher questionnaire. (Parents agree to waive their right to see the teacher’s answers so teachers can answer without fear of backlash from parents).
No diagnosis is required to attend Summer Trip Camp although the majority of our campers are diagnosed with ADHD and/or learning disabilities.
Summer Travel Camp is not appropriate for boys whom:
- are prone to physical aggression, emotional outbursts in public or elopement when upset/angry
- require 1:1 support or receive emotional support services in school
- are diagnosed with Asperger’s or higher-functioning autism
- have significant anxiety that manifests as negativity when in a group setting
Additionally, Summer Trip Camp is not a good match for parents who have separation anxiety from their children.
Parents: Please note that campers do not carry mobile phones with them during camp, including overnight trips.
If Summer Trip Camp is not where we believe your son could be most successful we will be happy to provide you with referrals to other camps.
Summer Trip Camp is a small program in order to assure a high degree of individual attention and instruction. Early registration is strongly encouraged.
