How to Apply 

Entrance Criteria

Miriam Learning Center camps serve children without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, age, and gender. All applicants must meet the following entrance criteria for any camp; campers must be independent with toileting, feeding, and clothing maintenance, free of toileting accidents, void of violent or eloping behaviors, able to communicate at a sentence level, and benefit from services within camp ratios. Acceptance is also contingent upon a camper’s ability to learn material and strategies within our intensive, two/three week format.
