Summer
  • At Camp Aristotle, we believe that the summer should be stress-free and full of fun! Our weekly themes are chosen with input from students because we know that growth happens when children are truly engrossed in what they are doing. Our exciting activities are carefully designed to foster friendships, self awareness, exploration, and social success. Many students at Camp Aristotle experience challenges associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder (previously Asperger's Syndrome or PDD-NOS), receptive/expressive/pragmatic language challenges and, ADHD; however, not all campers have a formal diagnosis. Students at Camp Aristotle may have trouble with peer relationships and/or impulse control. Sometimes, they have previously experienced unhappiness and frustration in camps where their need for tools such as sensory breaks were not respected or understood. Our teachers and staff are specially trained to understand these needs. Our goal is to provide all of our campers with an enjoyable, fulfilling and bully-free camp experience.

    Camp Aristotle accepts rising Kindergarten through rising 9th grade campers offering both half day and full day options.

    Camp Aristotle PEERS is a skills-based, interactive summer program designed to develop social skills in young teens (ages 12-15 years) who are interested in learning ways to make and keep friends. PEERS (Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills) is a sequential, social skills intervention program benefiting adolescents with autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, anxiety, depression and other social-communicative deficits.

    Camp Aristotle's hours are as followed:

    Full day: 8:15am -3:15pm

    Half day: 8:15am -12:00pm

    Aftercare: 3:15pm -5:15pm (for an additional charge)
