Children's Summer Day Program
**OUR CHILDREN'S SUMMER DAY PROGRAM IS CURRENTLY FULL. ANYONE LOOKING TO REGISTER FOR THIS PROGRAM WILL BE PUT ON A WAIT LIST.**
Camp Gencheff's children's summer day program provides school-aged children with intellectual and physical disabilities an exciting, engaging experience. Our location allows for us to provide programs that utilize our beautiful beachfront property and spacious backyard facility. We believe that we are able to provide unique experiences and opportunities for our clients that they wouldn't experience anywhere else.
We are committed to nurturing interactive play, imagination and creativity. We strive to provide a safe, healthy atmosphere where all children’s emotional, physical, and developmental needs are met. We aim to build self-confidence through the acquisition of new skills, accomplishments and insights and to teach cooperation while playing and working with others.
The program begins June 29, 2021, to September 3, 2021. It runs Monday-Friday (8 am - 5 pm).
Please send your child with a packed lunch, water bottle, swimsuit, water shoes, sunscreen, an extra change of clothes and any medications your child needs. Children who use assistive technology to communicate such as iPads and PECS are encouraged to bring their devices so our staff can adequately address their needs.
This summer we will be offering 9 weeks of themed day camps that are creative, innovative and engage your child in their interests whilst encouraging them to try something new. Our programs are highly structured and follow a schedule that allows for all children to prepare for transitions between activities. Each day of our program will feature daily exercises, two snack periods, lunch period, quiet time, and beach time (weather dependent). Some activities enjoyed by our children's summer day campers last year were canoeing, swimming, trivia, nature walks, sports, bike riding and water games.
Activities are pre-scheduled. Children are encouraged to participate in all activities. However, if a child is not interested in the activity offered there will be many alternatives offered to ensure they are actively engaged and having fun.
