Embrace Special Needs Summer Camp is a place for special needs children ages 3 years-11 years to continue socializing and learning over their summer break. All our camp teachers have special needs experience!
The camp will run from Monday, June 2nd to Friday, August 1st.
You can sign up for as many weeks as you choose, but children will receive more benefits from the camp when they attend for the full ten weeks.
There are three types of time slots you can sign up for:
1) Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 3:30pm - $250 a week
2) Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 6:00pm - $300 a week

The camp is located at McEachern Methodist Church in the Embrace Ministry classroom.

Children will be responsible for providing their own sack lunches. We do have the ability to heat up and/or refrigerate lunches. We will provide nutritional snacks for the children through out the day (crackers, fruit, etc.). If your child has a specific diet they need to follow, then children can bring in their own snacks also.
Many special needs children regress in their school/personal goals over summer because their routine is disrupted, but Embrace Special Needs Camp provides a safe and nurturing learning environment where your special needs child can keep practicing their goals throughout the summer and have fun doing it.
EMBRACE CAMP CURRICULUM
Our goal is to provide an enriching program to help individuals grow socially, independently, physically and academically! We realize that no child is the same, so majority of our curriculum will be made on an individual basis for each child. One way we will accomplish this is by having the parent submit three academic and/or behavioral goals that they want their child to work on over the summer.
One of Embrace's personal goals for all our special needs children is to ensure that they reach their optimal potential at being independent individuals and feel comfortable performing regular day to day activities in their surrounding community. In order to exercise this goal, we will take the kids on community outings (e.g. eating lunch at a restaurant, going to a grocery store, etc.)/field trips one to two times a week!
