Is your child doing well academically, but struggling with getting along with peers, or expressing emotions appropriately? Do you want to send your child to the next education level, but you are worried that he or she won't be successful socially?  

This camp has been designed with your family in mind! 


Small Group

Camp Ex-SEL will be a small group of children to ensure a highly structured program with maximum contact with camp facilitators.  During an intake meeting, we will review your concerns and how you hope your child will benefit from the camp.  The curriculum will be highly tailored to meet your child's needs. 

Target Skills

This camp will focus on working with your child to improve social skills, emotional management and regulation, and articulation and or language concerns. 

Parent Group

A group for parents will be held weekly to discuss the specific strategies we are using with your child and to offer suggestions for how you can carry over these teaching strategies across settings.
