“Mighty Mike” Simmel  and The Bounce Out the Stigma Project manage  and run a camp like no other. A truly special camp where all kids can feel truly at ease without the traditional camp pressures. Children discover new skills, new friends and an inner confidence on how much they can accomplish when given the opportunity.

Camp Program:

Each day The Bounce Out the Stigma™ summer program at starts at 9:30am (on court time) until 3:00pm daily.  We would like to have each group range for about 40 young people maximum co-ed ages 8-21. Because of our small numbers and resources available, we want each camper to receive a lot of individual attention for the time which they are going to be with us, and have a great week with allot of positive memories. Sessions will be made up of high focus and high intensity workouts.

Our camper  to staff ratio is 4:1 with a full time nurse available at all times. At the beginning of the week, the children will be put into different squads. Campers will learn some of their activities in a team atmosphere while they have fun meeting new friends in a social setting. They will participate in workshops with drills to develop motor skills and coordination to build confidence and self-esteem.  Our campers will play basketball and learn new drills- to gain knowledge and self empowerment.

Parents will also have a special session during the week to cover a special topic as well. Every day we will play games and have different contests, with basketball being the primary exercise. There will be breaks in the day for water and medications (if needed and administered ONLY by camp nurse).  Our adult volunteer staff will make it their primary effort to serve the needs of each and every camper and give due diligence to each and every one of their needs.

Our camp is one of the few dedicated camps for assisting unique kids with unique kids. Unlike many camps, kids are encouraged to feel good about their accomplishments and not challenged by what they cannot do.

 PLEASE NOTE: Each camper will be screened before camp begins to ensure they will have a fantastic experience. This is to make sure they can undergo the rigors of the week ahead of them and be put in the proper group. Camp will be filled with both challenges and fun, but we want to make sure that each child is both physically and emotionally prepared for the tasks involved.
