Neurodivergence

Introducing our new week of camp specifically designed for campers with neurodivergence! Over the years One Generation Camp has attracted campers who may struggle in a typical school setting, but blossom beautifully in the outdoor semi-structured environment of our camp. As always, these campers are welcome in any session, but we want to give these campers more and this specialized week allows just that.

Is this for me?

  • Does your child find nature calming?

  • Does your child thrive in a smaller group setting with more individual attention and support from teachers?

  • Does your child need space to move and time recover from overstimulation?

  • Is your child non-aggressive?

  • Is your child able to use a portapotty on their own?

  • Does your child have mild support needs?

  • Does your child do well in inclusive settings?

  • Can your child hike for one hour?

  • Are you wiling to work as a team with us to support your child in having an awesome camp experience?  

If you answered yes to most of these questions our Neurodivergent week might be the right fit for your child.

Who are the teachers?

Our teachers are specialists in the field of children with neurodivergence's. 

Rachel, our founder and director, not only brings over 25 years of experience working with kids with all kinds of abilities, but her fun loving attitude and focus on kindness makes all children feel valuable and supports a joyful camp experience.

Details:

This specialized week of camp is for campers ages 5 to 8. Our instructional dance and drumming classes will be reduced to 45 minutes to accommodate the campers needs. The low child to staff ratio means we can give your child more individualized support.

What to expect.

On your first day you will drive through Tilden park to Padres Picnic area. You will walk up the stairs to an open field with picnic tables, hula hoops, balls and a mat with books and art supplies. At the first picnic table you will be greeted by Rachel or Erin and sign in for the day. Your backpack with your lunch and water bottle will go by the mat under the trees and you'll have free time to play or read until morning circle. At morning circle the councilors will make any announcements, welcome all the campers, and prepare you for the dance or music class that comes next. Chris teaches Capoera, Nabi teaches West African dance and drumming, Demnis teaches Cuban Dance and Antwan teaches Body Percussion. Class will last 45 minutes. After class you'll have a snack from your backpack, use the bathroom and go for a hike with Rachel and Erin and the other campers.
