Summer Camp

Program Details

Applications for 2020 Summer Camp are now OPEN.

AM Camp Sessions (ages 5-21)

Participants have the opportunity to attend a camp program, supported by 1:1 or 1:2 professional staff while participating in games, crafts and activities as well as swimming, music therapy, horseback riding, circle time and snack.

PM Camp Sessions (ages 5-21)

If you are interested in registering your child in this program, you will need to sign up for both the am and pm programs. We will have special entertainment and businesses from the community join us while we continue to participate in games and activities, as well as crafts and more swimming. This afternoon group will also venture into the community to enjoy some of the local attractions.

AAAOK (ages 13-21)

If you are interested in registering your child in this program, you will need to sign up for both the am and pm programs. Aaron’s Acres Acts of Kindness (AAAOK) is a program in which our adolescents have the opportunity to continue our program in the afternoon and venture into the community to engage in age-appropriate service projects with their peers.

Activities range from engaging with nursing home residents, to cleaning up local parks and trails, to lending help at homeless shelters. Our view is that when everyone participates, everyone benefits.

Additional Benefits of Aaron’s Acres Acts of Kindness

  • Participants are given a sense of purpose and joy in their work
  • A positive environment is built upon the values of giving back and making a difference
  • Parents feel a sense of pride knowing their children can help others
  • Organizations realize that our adolescents can contribute in the community

A-Team

A-Team is a program for adolescent ages 13-21 diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome.

If you are interested in registering your child in this program, you will need to sign up for both the am and pm programs. The “A-Team” participates in age-appropriate recreational activities designed to develop their socialization and communication skills. Trips into the community could include the following: bowling, Greystone Therapeutic Riding Stables, or visiting the Lancaster Science Factory. In addition, these teenagers have the opportunity to participate in community service projects such as baking snacks for families who reside at the Ronald McDonald House in Hershey and then delivering them personally in order that they can gain a true understanding of what they provided to these people.
