An Innovative And Unique Summer Camp Where Teens Hang Out, Socialize, Have Fun, Build Lasting Friendships, and Create New Memories.

For youth, summer is a critical time to stay busy, socialize, have fun, make friends, and create new memories. Youth who participate in our camp benefit from real-world experiences. Participants have the chance to purchase lunch in the community, practice life skills such as decision making, tipping, money management, and build friendships in a safe and socially engaging environment. 

Our program is aimed at middle and high school students and has been enjoyed by many in the past. It focuses on developing skills such as confidence, self and social awareness, self-control, decision making, and resilience, which are important for success in life.

"Our Unique Camp is Like No Other, Where Kids Have Fun Developing Essential Life Skills".
Rosa Gomes

Social Learning = Inclusiveness = Friendship = Team Building = Leadership = Lasting Memories

Program Services:

SEL and Group Discussions

Our program is unique because executive function, social emotional, and mental health wellness is at the core of our program and in everything that we do. We help youth build independent life skills through daily interactions, activities, as well as open group discussions addressing:

  • Positive Social Interaction
  • Friendship/Communication
  • Self-Management
  • Leadership/Team Building
  • Transition
  • Planning/Time Management
  • Responsible Decision Making (e.g. flexibility, safety, choices, actions, empathy for others, advocacy, and compromising)
Community “Hang Out” Time:

Socialization is one of our focus area. “Hang Out” time allows youth to build positive social interactions plus “hang out” and be adventurous in our surrounding communities. Participants spend social time with peers enjoying outings and activities by  walking, and public transit to pizzerias, cafes, restaurants, bakeries, farmer’s market, museums and other excursions in the DMV communities.
