If any other special needs camps are in Florida and would like to offer their waitlist campers an alternative choice, we would be happy to do the same.
Camp Attracta is a unique camping experience in South Florida for children with difficulties adjusting to traditional social environments. Our unique summer program was developed to help children with their self-esteem, develop independence and social skills.﻿ Our camp is open to all children ages 10-16, however we specialize in helping campers who are often diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, High-Functioning Austism Spectrum Disorder, ASD-Level 1 (Asperger's), PDD-NOS, Depression or Anxiety Disorders, learning difficulties or simply have trouple making friends.
We emphasize skill building, teamwork, social awareness and trust techniques to prepare your child for school and other social experiences. This is done through organized group activities and events to make camp life a fun and enjoyable occaision. Campers will be participating in on and off camp activities. More information is provided under the Camp Programs section of the website.Choosing a camp or summer program for your child can be an overwhelming process. At Camp Attracta we know what a big decision this is for you as a family. We take the worry out of sending your child to camp. With several different sessions to choose from, (3-week, 5-week, 6-week or 8-week) you can make the decision that best fits your child's needs. When your child has extra needs, either social, emotional or learning related, simple things can become difficult. We strive to make difficult things easy, giving your child the skills that will last them a lifetime.
Everyday at camp your child is learning:
- how to make friends
- how to act in social settings
- how to resolve conflicts
- how to build confidence and self esteem
- how to work together with other campers & counselors to achieve their personal best
All of this is done through indoor and outdoor activities, while enjoying everything that Camp Attracta has to offer. Here many campers will learn how to succeed independently and with friends, taking this with them for the rest of their lives. We celebrate our differences and learn what makes each of us unique. We utilize this to help us achieve personal and team goals. At Camp Attracta there is something for everyone and perhaps some new things your child would have never known they enjoy. We invite you to go through our website to see all that we have to offer.
