Just Right Academy students make incredible gains throughout the year, but then face a three month period without programming that can help them retain those gains. In response to that need, JRA introduces two summer camps for our students and others.
A student who will be successful at camp:
can communicate independently
enjoys being outdoors
is able to play in a group
is between 2nd grade and 8th grade
A student who will be a successful CIT:
can be left alone for short periods of time
can follow multiple step verbal directions
wants to improve their leadership skills
Is 9th grade or older
Zombie Apocalypse Boot Camp, (ZABC), will be held June 19th-30th at 36 Terrybrook lane, Hillsborough. Designed for campers 4th-12th grade with behavioral challenges and/or ASD, ZABC is a highly structured wilderness survival camp that will give your child the skills necessary to not only survive, but thrive during the zombie apocalypse. In addition to fishing, hiking, archery, fire building, and outdoor cooking, ZABC campers will learn to work as a group and build social skills. Most staff are full time special educators who have experience with reactive children and ASD; most are certified in NCI and LSCI. One-on-ones are welcome. Camp is $500 per week, or $900 for both weeks. A deposit of $100 will hold your child’s spot.
Camp Accolade, held July 31-August 11 on JRA campus, is a two-week day camp for children, who struggle with emotional and behavioral disorders. The camp offers children who have previously been unsuccessful in typical summer camp settings because of their behavior the opportunity to enjoy a safe, structured, empowering experience. The camp works on bonding with others, thinking about others socially, and self-control. But the main purpose is having fun doing typical camp activities such as games, swimming, and crafts. Most staff is North Carolina Interventions trained and experienced with reactive children. Camp is $500 per week, or $900 for both weeks. A deposit of $100 will hold your child’s spot.
