Although winter is clearly still here, now is the right time to be registering your child for summer camp!
While the Phoenix Center offers an extended school year program (ESY) for the month of July, August is often a difficult time for many of our families. Downtime without much structure often presents challenges for many of our students as they strongly benefit from routine and structured activities.
Below is a list of day camps that offer such opportunities for your child. Most camps provide services to those age 5-21, unless otherwise noted.
