**Please note** The Camp of Champs is not the most appropriate setting for every child. If your child has a 1:1 in a school setting, a history of physical or verbal aggressiveness, or sexualized behavior, please contact us BEFORE enrolling. We will work to never exclude a camper but in the event he/she has higher needs, a 1:1 support staff may need to be assigned and an additional fee may apply.
Camp of Champs-Traditional Sessions
All sessions offered at the Camp of Champs are unique. What we have done is to classify our camp offerings into 2 "types".
The Traditional "Camp of Champs" in June or late August is a great fit for campers looking for a bigger camp feel (usually 45-80 campers). These sessions focus on basic social skills, understanding how to better communicate with peers, leaders and family, the value of respect and boundaries and improving self-esteem among others. We also offer "MINI" Camp of Champs sessions which is a great option for first time campers.
Camp of Champs-LITE Sessions
The new LITE Program ("Leaders in Training Experience") will provide higher functioning youth an opportunity to practice independent living, develop leadership skills/potential, and focus on transition skills. Fun activities for LITE campers include:
Off-site adventures to Jaspers Theater, Hubbard County Fair, Itasca State Park (Headwaters of Mississippi)
Kayaking to local Foxy's Grill
In order to be eligible for our LITE Program, campers must meet criteria. If your child is in a setting I in special education with a desire to lead, influence and grow but has particular needs you think we could help address, please contact us for more information.
