Each day The Bounce Out the Stigma™ summer program at starts at 9:00am (on court time) until 2:00pm daily. We would like to have each group range for about 45 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. This is a camp for special needs children the intensity of activity is geared to special needs.
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.
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.
