    Camp Attaway is a one-of a-kind Howard County therapeutic recreation program for children ages 7-13 with complex emotional and behavioral disorders.  Through Camp Attaway, children learn how to break out of their negative cycle and learn new skills while enjoying sports, nature, art, rock climbing, swimming and adventures of all kinds. Attaway also has a Counselor-In-Training Program for former campers 13-15 years old that focuses on leadership and job skills.

    For more than 25 years, this day camp and treatment program has supported children who often face challenges when they try to participate in traditional camp experiences.

    Our Mission: To nurture the mind, the body, and the spirit of children who are missing out on fun, friendship, success, and achievement because of difficulty managing their emotions and behavior, as well as provide education and mental health supports to families.

    Camp Attaway is only able to accept campers who reside in Howard County. The Camp is a three week day camp program.
