Summit Camp provides a summer camp experience for boys and girls, ages 7-17, who have issues of attention. These may include Attention Deficit Disorder, verbal or non-verbal learning disabilities, mild social or emotional concerns, and/or Asperger's syndrome. Some of our campers may also have Tourrete's syndrome, O.C.D., and /or mild mood issues. Summit Travel works with older children, ages 15-19, who have similar issues.

Our Camping Philosophy/Therapeutic Recreation:

Every camp must strive to assure the health, safety and happiness of each and every child while meeting his/her basic need for acceptance, recognition and respect.

For our campers, these goals are met through a program of therapeutic recreation. The camp is the setting in which recreational, social, and educational activities have, as a primary goal, the establishment or reinforcement of feelings of success, confidence, enthusiasm, and self-worth.

The achievement of these goals require that the activities presented be in harmony with the capabilities of the child, so that success is attainable. Our program is structured so that the campers receive regular instruction in the widest possible variety of recreational skills, and are able to judge and appreciate their own progress. At the same time, our program is flexible so that each child can pursue areas of individual interest.

Our goals are attained only by placing youngsters with a compatible group of children and with the right staff members for that group. Through individual guidance and the maintenance of realistic and consistent expectations, every opportunity for self-understanding, social development, the creation of friendships, and for the improvement of interpersonal living skills is tenderly nurtured.
