How It Works
Camp Baker is a 6-week day camp specifically designed for children with mild to moderate symptoms of ADHD. We have a fun, structured curriculum that helps set kids with inattention and hyperactivity up for success. Children participate in typical summer camp activities such as swimming, sports, and art. They also engage in two academic periods and daily social skills training.
Making A Difference
For the first time ever, my child was not only successful, but he enjoyed every day of his camp experience!
Camp Baker helps kids and parent build skills in a fun camp environment. The structure, clear expectations, and focus on praise, helps kids build confidence and feel good about themselves.
I left my child knowing he was safe and accepted.
Camp Baker's individualized approach really gives kids the tools they need in their toolbox to help them independently manage situations in the outside world.
The staff is so much better equipped to handle the specific needs of children with ADHD.
