Camp Application

Children are referred by school counselors and school special services personnel, by community agencies dealing with human services, and by individuals. 

‚Äč

All applications are viewed under the same criteria by camp directors. The entire program is based largely on behavioral modification theory which places heavy emphasis on extinction of maladaptive behavior (interfering with learning) and eliciting of new behaviors through the use of positive reinforcement.

 

We are proud to serve children from the entire U.S.A.

Criteria for selection:

  1. The child is presenting learning and/or adjustment problems which preclude his/her benefiting from normal classroom participation

  2. The child is within the ages of 7 to 12 (boys) or 8 to 12 (girls) and is in the first six grades of school

  3. The child is not severely limited by a physical handicap so that his/her camping experience might be hindered

  4. The child appears to have normal intelligence as revealed by any school group testing result

  5. The child is not psychotic or severely brain damaged

  6. The child, while exhibiting behavioral problems in the classroom, is believed not harmful either to himself or to others in response to stresses normally encountered not only in the classroom, but also in a new experience of camping

  7. the child's parents or referral agency seem interested in the program and will cooperate in any way possible, including full application information, parental and/or social work post-camp conferences with the child's teacher (at the time we schedule you to pick your child up), and in providing transportation to and from the camp
