Summer Fundamentals Camp: Students entering grades K-8.
One wrong turn at Jupiter . . . and misfiring your spaceship’s hyperdrive has left you light years from Earth. Now you are lost and need help to find your way. The intergalactic team at Miriam’s Summer Fundamentals camps will give you a roadmap to jettison your reading, writing, math, and social/emotional skills to infinity and beyond. Remember to make a sharp right at the Milky Way on your way back, or you may be lost in space forever! Sessions are held June 20-30 (no camp June 19), July 3-14 (no camp July 4), and July 17-28 at the Webster Groves campus.
Miriam's Academic Camps: Students entering grades K-8.
Miriam’s academic camps are a fun way for students who need additional help with reading, writing, math, and executive functioning to learn strategies and build self-confidence over the summer. Our certified special education teachers and reading specialists offer individualized and specialized instruction for all students in a 6:1 camper-to-staff setting. Campers will learn while enjoying a camp experience. Sessions are held June 20-30 (no camp June 19), July 3-14 (no camp July 4), and July 17-28 at the Webster Groves campus.
Teen Social Skills Camp: Students entering grade 9 - leaving grade 12.
Miriam's Social Skills Camps address the unique social skills and/or emotional regulation needs of each camp participant. Miriam's certified teachers, counselors, and therapists customize topics that are appropriate to each social skills group. Campers are taught skills using empirically-based curricula such as Social Thinking, Superflex, and Zones of Regulation. Instructors then reinforce skills through fun group activities. Teen Social Skills Camp is held June 12-16 at the Olivette campus.
