Building Confidence and Connection for Kids With Executive Function Challenges

GrowNOW-EF Camp is a unique summer experience designed for kids who thrive in active, social environments and are eager to make new friends. We welcome girls and boys with a range of learning styles and needs*, including ADHD, Executive Function Challenges, Social-Pragmatic Challenges, and Life Skills.

Our camp is ideal for boys and girls who:

  • Enjoy the camaraderie of peers and want to build their social skills through shared experiences.
  • Benefit from a hands-on, experiential learning approach that goes beyond traditional classrooms.
  • Currently developing but still needs some assistance in developing critical social and independent living skills.

Our camp is NOT for boys or girls who:

  • Have a history of running away from adults when dysregulated.
  • Require 1:1 support in school or are in a self-contained behavioral classroom.
  • Becomes very easily dysregulated when in a social peer group.
  • Has a history of physical or violent aggression.

*Important Notes:

  • GrowNOW-EF Camp is not a therapeutic camp, a behavior modification program, or a special needs camp.
  • We offer a supportive environment but cannot provide the level of specialized care found in those settings.

Building Skills While Having Fun!

Our GrowNOW – EF Summer Day Camp Fosters

  • Social Confidence: Through collaborative activities and new experiences, kids build communication, teamwork, and problem-solving skills, gaining confidence in their social interactions.
  • Independence: Campers learn essential life skills like self-care, responsibility, and decision-making in a safe and supportive environment.

GrowNOW – EF Camp Application Process

GrowNOW – EF Camp is committed to creating an ideal environment for all campers to thrive.

To ensure a fantastic fit for our program, we employ a multi-step application process. This approach helps us understand each applicant’s interests and needs, allowing us to curate the best possible experience for all enrolled campers.

Before You Begin the Application Process
Please read through the following important information.

  • Admission is selective: Please review the camper profile above carefully to see if GrowNOW Camp aligns with your child’s needs. Applying does not guarantee acceptance.
  • Deposit required: If your child is accepted, a $750 deposit is required upon enrollment.
  • Active and outdoorsy: Expect significant outdoor time (parks, water activities, etc.). While athletic ability isn’t required, being comfortable outdoors is crucial. If your child tires easily or dislikes outdoor activities, GrowNOW ADHD Camp may not be the best fit.
  • Encouraging flexibility: We help boys and girls with ADHD develop cognitive flexibility, something they often achieve better in peer groups. If your child expects constant accommodation for their inflexibility, GrowNOW Camp may not be suitable. We focus on skill development, not behavior modification.
  • Medical review necessary: Full acceptance hinges on medical forms confirming we can accommodate your child’s health needs.
  • Photo/video policy: Photos and videos (with first names only) may be shared on GrowNOW ADHD Camp social media. If your child cannot appear in such content, unfortunately, she or he won’t be eligible to attend.
  • Referrals available: If we believe additional support is needed for your child’s success, we’ll gladly provide referrals to other camps better equipped to meet those needs.

Note: We understand these policies may require adjustments, but they ensure the best possible experience for all campers. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
