At Camp Aristotle, we believe that the summer should be stress-free and full of fun! Our weekly themes are chosen with direct input from students because we know that growth happens when children are truly engrossed in what they are doing. Our exciting activities are carefully designed to foster friendships, self awareness, exploration, and social success. Many students at Camp Aristotle experience challenges associated with Asperger's Syndrome, high functioning autism, anxiety-related disorders, and ADHD; however, not all campers have a formal diagnosis. Students at Camp Aristotle may have trouble with peer relationships and/or impulse control. Sometimes, they have previously experienced unhappiness and frustration in camps where their need for tools such as sensory breaks were not respected or understood. Our teachers and staff are specially trained to understand these needs. Our goal is to provide all of our campers with an enjoyable, fulfilling and bully-free camp experience.
Camp Aristotle accepts rising Kindergarten through 9th grade (11th grade at our Herndon Campus) campers.
The camp day runs from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM, with aftercare available until 5:30 PM.
Campers participate in a variety of activities based on the weekly themes. Activities may include, but are not limited to:
-music, movement and dance
-team building games
-construction and design
Each day, campers rotate through different activities and are encouraged and supported to take risks, improve social skills, make new friends, and try different things.
