Giving teenagers the social tools to connect with others
The Parish School’s Camp Connect is a 5-day overnight camp held at Camp Aranzazu for 12- to 16-year-olds who struggle with social skills. From the founder of Camp Social Superheroes, Camp Connect continues to embrace the Social Thinking® methodology. Campers learn to connect with others, adapt to social environments and solve social problems, while enjoying a camp experience with team challenges, rock walls, fun activities and more. Goals are customized for each camper.
Counselors have a background in speech-language pathology and special education, and provide direct therapy within small groups (5:1 student ratio).
Camp Connect focuses on the following concepts:
- Social observation skills
- Understanding and forming friendships
- Conflict resolution
- Hidden social rules for teenagers
