We provide wholesome food that is generally familiar to kids (for example, hamburgers, hotdogs, peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, cereal, and eggs) and mosty made from scratch. We encourage our sometimes-picky campers to try new foods by serving no-thank-you helpings of every dish and celebrating new tastes discovered. We do have limited meal alternatives, and will never let a child go hungry.
We are able to accommodate special dietary needs including but not limited to: Vegetarian, Vegan, Dairy-free, and GF/CF. There is an extra charge for all except vegetarian, to defray added ingredient and prep costs. We are not able to provide fully kosher meals.
We do not serve junk food, deep-fried items, or much processed sugar (except our camp-out s'mores and ice cream night!). Healthy afternoon snacks are offered every day, and we encourage the drinking of plenty of water all day long.
Talisman Programs is in our 4th decade of providing exceptional programming for children with ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome, and other learning differences in an experiential adventure camp environment. Our programs offer children opportunities to develop physical and social competence in an atmosphere that encourages and supports self-regulation and self-direction.
Our activities are designed to build confidence, promote responsibility, and provide a fun and successful summer camp experience. We teach problem-solving and conflict resolution through our insight-oriented group discussions, modeling and practice. Our highly-structured schedule and supportive staff allow campers to relax in a safe environment for building friendships and independence while having loads of fun!
