Camp Possible

Camp Possible is a therapeutic camp for children ages 6-12 who struggle with behavioral/mental health issues. Campers attend for 8 weeks during their summer break. They participate in traditional and non-traditional group therapy sessions which provide opportunities to practice new skills in pro-social camp activities. Each week a new character trait will be presented with opportunities to build skills around the trait. At Camp Possible children practice skills such as anger management, self-esteem, peer relations, taking direction, interacting with adults, and more. Trained clinical staff take children into the community to practice in real-life settings that are safe and kid-friendly.
