Friendship is a never-ending circle of reciprocal and positive interactions with peers. Learn creative ways to start and make lasting friendships with other high school students through fun camp activities and community-based outings held each Friday.
Mix and match one or two camps per session to make a half or full-day camp experience. Morning sessions run from 8:00am-11:00am and afternoon sessions operate from 12:00pm-3:00pm. Campers participate in a supervised lunch from 11:00am to noon when they attend a morning and afternoon camp in the same session. Not every camp is offered each session. Refer to the camp schedule below before choosing a camp.
How to Apply
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.
Please complete a summer camp application. New campers MUST provide an evaluation report or report card and an IEP (if they have one) at the time of the application. We will also get feedback from your child's teacher(s). Once we have received all of the documents, camp staff will contact you. All new campers will meet with camp staff for approximately 20 minutes before acceptance.

Possible Community Resources to Help Fund Summer Camp
Some community resources may help fund Miriam summer camps. Families may contact the following agencies to see if they have funding and if their child will qualify.
A $250 deposit per camp is due when a camper is accepted. The remainder of camp fees are due by April 30, 2024 and we provide no refunds after this date. Fees not paid in full may result in the loss of a camper's placement. Due to small camp ratios, we do not allow switching camps or sessions after April 30.
