Our Behavior Policy:

While it is our hope to be inclusive of all students who qualify, our expectation is that there may be occasional behavioral incidents during our camp weeks. It is our intent to apply various social/behavior strategies to support students through those challenges/moments. With that being said, Developmental Connections reserves the right to discontinue the participation of a student whose behaviors prove to be a detriment to the safety or productivity of the larger group. In such situations, parents will be notified with a first-time warning, and if the decision is made to discontinue the participation, parents will be provided with a prorated refund. 


Feel free to contact us at info@developmentalconnections.org for any questions!

Scholarship Applications


If you wish to apply for financial assistance, please see the following application. Limited scholarships are available. Please submit your application by May 5, 2017, and we will notify families as soon as possible. No monies will be sent to the family; they will be used to offset costs of the program. 

  • JULY 17-21: TEAM ADVENTURE — There is no “I” in team. Counselors will lead a vast array of team-oriented activities like Crack the Code, Tag Team drawing, Treasure hunt, and so much more! that  promote social, group problem solving, and thinking flexibly. Are you a flexible thinker? If some Unthinkable® attacks will the Superflex® in you defeat them? Of course, you will! 
  • JULY 24-28 UNTHINKABLE SCIENCE — We’ll explore the basics of science with some radical reactions! Want to know who stole the ice cream? Become a detective and use evidence and clues to catch the crook. After we’ve fingerprinted the felon with our own fingerprint kits, we’ll celebrate by making and eating our own ice cream! Crack codes and get crazy with science! 


Payment Plans


Payment plans are available in order to make payment more convenient for families. A minimum $200 deposit is due at the time of registration. Payments will be invoiced monthly (April, May, June). Full payment must be made by June 9.

Students Who Will Benefit


Camp Connect is an inclusive environment that supports children with social learning challenges and their peers. Our themes are designed to appeal to a range of students to improve their social ability and their awareness of social differences. 


While our camp is for all kids, we would like to ensure that your student will benefit from our camp. We are asking that they meet the below student profile: 

  • Near-normal to well above average verbal and non-verbal intelligence – be able to verbally express wants and needs and have a simple two-way conversation
  • Have a reasonable level of understanding that each person has a different set of thoughts, even if they cannot apply this knowledge
  • Potty-trained
  • JUNE 19-23: TO INFINITY & BEYOND — Three, two, one...blast off! Young astronauts will have a blast in our out-of-this-world summer camp. Imaginations will soar as we explore the solar system together. Each day your little space engineer will create one-of-a-kind art projects, explore planets, and make intergalactic music. Don’t let gravity hold you down. 
  • JUNE 26-30: CHEF'S ACADEMY — Campers will be making snacks from simple ingredients into “creations” and enjoy eating them! Each camper will receive their own chef hat & apron to personalize and take home with them at the end of the week. If your child has any food allergies, please contact us regarding them prior to registering.
