Aspire Summer Camp is a fun-filled 7-week therapeutically-based day program that provides children with a time-honored summer activity: summer camp. Our campers are children entering grade 1 through age 15 who have the cognitive capacity for solid peer connections but who lack the skill set to form these connections.
Aspires Summer Camps are planned and coordinated by Genna Lyons, LMFT, M.S., Program Manager. Most groups consist of 6 children and 2 staff, a Group Leader and an Assistant Group Leader. Each group is supervised by a Site Director or an Assistant Site Director. The staff are from related professions or in related graduate and undergraduate programs who take part in intensive pre-camp and ongoing training. Onsite supervisors, program specialists, and consultants support children and staff throughout the summer.
