Get Ready For a Social Summer with Camp Connect — An All-Inclusive Opportunity!


Camp-Connect-200Developmental Connections is hosting their second Camp Connect, a summer of project-based fun for your 1st- through 6th-grader. These all-inclusive summer camps, held at Leesburg Junction in Leesburg, VA, are a great opportunity for children, no matter their abilities, to practice their social skills and meet new friends. At camp, students will learn from Loudoun County teachers specifically trained in social learning, plus participate in new experiences that will challenge them to use critical and social thinking skills.

Most importantly, Developmental Connections gives children an outlet to meet new friends and gain confidence in themselves.

Camper’s friends and siblings are encouraged to join too — there is so much fun to be had with everyone! Broken down into two sessions, each 2-weeks long, Camp Connect offers exciting weekly themes including:

Session 1:
To Infinity & Beyond | June 19-23, 2017
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.

Chef’s Academy | June 26-30, 2017
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.

Session 2:
Team Adventure | July 17-21, 2017
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!

Unthinkable Science | July 24-28, 2017
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!

Camp Connect is hosted by Developmental Connections, a nonprofit organization designed to support the social development of all students.
