Summer Escape 2020

Safety is most important to us. In being essential to the population of students with special needs we serve, we are moving forward with offering Summer Escape.

We have made changes in line with The Florida Re-Opening Plan and recommendations from community leaders to keep our clients and families safe in light of the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Limiting access to the building.
  • Keeping groups limited to numbers recommended by The Florida Re-Opening Plan.
  • Having staff meet the children outside for the check-in process.
  • Checking temperatures and completing health screenings.
  • Washing children's hands when they arrive.
  • Doing additional disinfecting of commonly touched surfaces.

The Florida Re-Opening Plan can be found here:

Summer Escape

Summer Escape is a summer camp for children and teens with special needs, between the ages of 5 and 21. With a staff trained in implementing individualized support systems, we are ready to tailor the experience to ensure every child has a summer worth remembering. The camp will have weekly sessions, with options for half-days and full-days, early drop off and late pick up. Every week will have an overall theme, and daily activities include music time, arts and crafts, dance parties, and so much more!
