Parents and children alike speak of summer camps with excitement, often reflecting on fond memories from their own experiences. Summer camps are an opportunity for children of all walks of life to continue to build upon the cognitive, emotional and psychological skills learned throughout the school year.
Camp Firefly is tailored to the special needs of children, teens, and young adults who struggle in social spheres. Whether diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Asperger’s, Non-Verbal Learning Disability, Social Anxiety, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, or just generally having problems with social communication, then consider Camp Firefly for your child. The camp offers specialized, therapeutic assistance in boosting self-confidence, engaging with peers effectively, and managing emotional dysregulation within a safe, supported, and fun environment. At Camp Firefly, youth learn new skills while engaging with like-minded peers.
