Welcome to Camp Attracta
We "Attracta" Our Campers With F.U.N!
FRIENDS... UNDERSTANDING... NATURE
Camp Attracta is a premiere overnight summer camp experience in South Florida for children with difficulties adjusting to traditional social environments. Our unique summer program was created to foster self-esteem, facilitate independence and teach social skills. Camp Attracta is open to all children ages 10-16, however we specialize in helping campers who are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, High-Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder, ASD-Level 1 (Asperger's), PDD-NOS, Anxiety Disorders, learning disabilities or simply have difficulty making friends.
At Camp Attracta the emphasis is on F.U.N… Friends… Understanding… Nature. Structured activities that build teamwork, social awareness, inter and intrapersonal relationships fill the day, giving your child new confidence and skills to keep striving for their personal best, long after they leave Camp Attracta. Traditional camp activities and events are offered with guidance and modeling to make camp life all about FUN! Campers will be able to participate in on-site activities and special day trips.
Choosing a camp or summer program for your child can be an overwhelming process. At Camp Attracta we know what a big decision this is for you as a family. We take the stress out of sending your child to camp. We offer several different sessions to choose from, (2-week, 3-week, 5-week, 6-week or 8-week) so that you can make the decision that best fits your child's needs. When your child has extra needs, either social, emotional or learning related, activities or interactions that may appear simple can become difficult. At Camp Attracta, we strive to make these perceived difficulties easier while giving your child skills that will last them a lifetime.
Through structured activities, every camper learns how to:
Read Social Cues
Build confidence and self esteem
Interact with other campers & counselors
Strive for their personal best
At Camp Attracta, F.U.N…Friends Understanding and Nature, is the cornerstone of our camp experience! We celebrate our differences and learn what makes each of us unique. Traditional camp activities that promote camaraderie are blended with unique activities that foster interdependence and independence. Self-esteem increases as our campers learn through games, events and activities how to succeed independently and with friends. At Camp Attracta there is something for everyone and perhaps some new things your child would have never known they enjoy.
