Scamps Summer Day Camp
Spofford Change Action and Mastery Programs (SCAMPS)
SCAMPS is our summer day camp for children ages 6-12 that specializes in providing social skills development; particularly peer interaction, conflict resolution, and self-confidence.
"SCAMPS taught me that I'm not alone... that sometimes when I have trouble and get frustrated there are people who understand and want to help me."
- SCAMPS participant, age 9
"The memories my son has from SCAMPS will last forever. He is happier and easier to redirect... our family time has greatly improved."
- Parent of a SCAMPS participant
"My student has made a huge improvement in interpersonal relationship building skills. It is amazing to see him have more confidence in the classroom and with his peers."
