Summer Camp Makes A Difference for Children with Learning Differences

All children benefit from the structure and positive peer interaction that summer camps provide once classes have ended for the school year. Camp can be particularly important for children and teens with autism spectrum disorder and other special needs. By enrolling in a camp program that is designed exclusively for them, children with learning and social challenges can continue to develop positive behaviors and social skills during the summer months while at the same time engaging in fun, age-appropriate activities.

Specialized camps like Beyond Camp help children with autism, ADD/ADHD and other specific learning challenges build the essential social, communication, cognitive and sensory skills that they are often unable to gain. Specialized camps also aim to prevent the regression that can occur during summer break. Camps provide children with the opportunity to learn, play with peers and interact with the world around them in everyday settings. Children are able to improve their confidence, increase self-esteem and establish important communication skills and friendships that they can carry with them into their adult life.
Julie Billiart Schools' Beyond Camp is an award winning summer option for children in grades K-8 (ages 5 to 14) with special learning needs. 

During this four week summer adventure, campers will:
• Develop social skills including perspective taking and emotional regulation while also generalizing newly developed skills within various social settings. 
• Express themselves creatively through exercise, cooking, writing, art, STEM activities, music and sports.
• Combat summer learning loss through academic boosting activities.

Beyond Camp staff includes highly experienced intervention specialists, a speech/language pathologist, and is led by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. While fun and full of activities, this therapeutic camp is a data driven program to measure growth, development and mastery of new skills. This year’s sessions will begin on July 15 and will run through August 9, 2019.

Beyond Camp will be held this year from July 15 - August 9.
