Rising Star Camp
Rising Star Camp is a therapeutic day camp especially designed to
promote self-esteem, conflict resolution skills, positive interactions
and success in its participants. Rising Star Camp is a unique program
that accommodates children who may not have had the opportunity to
attend day camp. This program is also designed to support children
who have struggled with the traditional day camp experience.
Some of the supports that are built into our program to ensure the
success of every camper are:
A 1:6 staff to child ratio
Crisis Intervention Counselor for children who
need individual attention throughout the day.
Goal setting, between the camper and their counselor,
at the beginning of each day emphasizes the importance of making
positive behavioral changes. A period of time is provided at the
end of the day where the counselor and camper discuss the progress
that was made towards their goal.
The camp program uses a reward system in which
camp participants earn stickers with good choices/positive participation
in camp activities; participants who have earned at least 20 stickers
throughout the week are able to attend the weekly field trip on
Friday. If additional stickers are earned, children may spend them
at the weekly Sticker Store which is held on Thursday
Rising Star Camp is open to youth ages 6 to 14 years old.
