Kids with learning differences or ADHD have a range of options at Talisman. Some of our ADHD camps include: Discovery, Foundations, Teen Adventures & Leadership. Discovery is an introduction to camp for our youngest campers (6-7). Foundations provides campus-based adventures for children and younger adolescents (8-13), while the Teen Adventures (13-17) offer wilderness challenges and Leadership (16-22) builds more advanced social and community skills. In all programs, we focus on the areas of social interaction, organization and personal responsibility, while building their self-confidence and giving them an unforgettable summer!
In all of our ADHD camps, campers receive daily executive function coaching for tasks, such as morning and evening (hygiene) routine, chores, goal-setting and completion and camp projects. Daily planning and problem-solving, including conflict resolution, are slowed down and taken step-by-step through our group supported problem-solving process, allowing them time to think through decisions rather than act impulsively. High-interest and physical activities help them increase attention and learn to minimize distractions. Campers practice respectful and thoughtful interactions with others, building skills for more effective responses and improved relationships.
