YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
OUR SUMMER CAMPS ARE IN SESION!
You can feel the excitement…summer is here! And children from all over Delaware have started arriving at Children’s Beach House to attend our Youth Development Program’s summer camp.
As part of the CBH Youth Development Program, children ages 7-18 with communicative disabilities and special needs benefit from year-round case management support to help them grow and develop. A special part of this development program is the summer camp experience.
And that’s because at CBH summer camp our children get to be “campers” and participate in activities that they would not otherwise ever experience. Activities like kayaking, swimming, ceramic arts, drama and sports.
But more importantly, our CBH Summer Camp program provides a safe place where children with special needs can just be “themselves” as they explore, learn and develop new skills and interests.
So far, our YDP summer camp weeks have been themed Wild & Wacky Animals, Super Heroes!, Wizards vs. Aliens, Candyland, Time Travel, and Shipwrecked!
