Camp Altitude: Where life skills develop and friendships blossom!
Altitude is committed to providing safe, fun and rewarding experiences that promote social learning and independent living skills for individual children. A Camp Altitude campers are children who are excited about coming to camp and experiencing a traditional summer camp. The camper would have some insight to their strengths and challenges, willingness to grow, and have social intent toward their peers.
Altitude campers function comfortably within a ratio of 3 campers to 1 adult staff member. Our highly trained professional staff coupled with energetic college and post-graduate aged counselors will provide an experience that integrates your camper's unique needs.
Camp Altitude takes place at Menlo College in Atherton, California, just twenty minutes south of San Francisco.
Our campers are grouped into cohorts of roughly 6 children and 2 counselor staff throughout the program day. A team of professional staff, including psychologists, an occupational therapist and a special education teacher, are also involved in the day-to-day camp activities and will participate with our cohorts throughout the day.
Altitude was created to fill a gap in services for children with social-cognitive challenges so that they too could experience the fun and adventure of a traditional camp program whilst improving their social and independent living skills.
