2017 ADHD Camp

The All Days Are Happy Days Summer Camp is a week long camp for children between 6 and 11 years of age diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The primary goal of the All Days Are Happy Days Camp is to educate campers and their parents about the diagnosis, treatment, and self-management of ADHD and related behaviors. The vision of the BCDD staff is to offer a camp specifically designed for young children with ADHD that will provide an avenue for these children to engage in planned activities, which will promote increased self-esteem, develop and maintain friendships, understand ADHD, and learn appropriate problem-solving behaviors. The camp activities are targeted to manage behaviors associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Campers team with other campers who are experiencing similar issues related to ADHD. A professional team of educators, social workers, medical personnel and students will be on site and serve as group leaders and/or consultants. This camp offers a staff to camper ratio close to one to one.
