Innovative Life Skills
Our summer 'Lab System' focuses on innovative life skills and life management programs. Each camper receives individual assistance and instruction within a group framework.
Our closely monitored labs teach the campers to gain self worth, take on responsibility, follow instructions, develop organizational skills, control impulsivity, follow the rules of society, and of equal importance - HAVE FUN!
