Yellowstone National Park / Tetons 2018 Summer Family Camp
Contact Chaia May (Director) for more information: (650) 269-4782, [email protected].
Our staff is made up of: seasoned, passionate professionals with many years of experience as educators interested in young people of all kinds’ well being. I have chosen each mentor as someone who is both a stellar role model in his or her profession and for his or her level of compassion.
We welcome children who are: able to respond to directions for the most part. If they are not typically oppositional but have periodic upsets we have been able to manage well in the past and feel that we can insure their safety.
Parents are welcome to join us: full-time, part-time or on an on-call basis if they would like to be present. We encourage parents to be part of our camp experience and benefit from whatever meets their needs best. If they feel most relaxed being involved we are very comfortable with that. The only caveat is if the parent has expressed a desire for the child to be more integrated socially and their presence inhibits that possibility.
Regarding the question, if staff members from your company are welcome to be present to assist at the camp, as needed, the answer is yes.
We typically attract: high-functioning children with autism and attention issues.
We welcome more children/young people: who have a developmental age between 6-12 yet chronologically are older. Siblings under 6 are also welcome and are only charged the same incidental fees as the parents.
We will have music and dance classes that are available for both parents and children throughout the week. Private classes will also be an option. There will be an evening performance on Friday and we will leave after lunch on Saturday.
Our dates and times are: July 23 – 29.
Social skill and leadership development will be an integral part of our goals and curriculum.
