Children and teens diagnosed with developmental disabilities join their friends and peers for fun and enriching activities. Our caring staff and nurturing environment allows family members to take this time to attend to other responsibilities with the knowledge that their children are safe and engaged. Throughout the year, children and teens join us for weekend retreats, respite trips scheduled around school holidays, special events, and our flagship week-long end-of-summer program.
