Summer Therapeutic Enrichment Program (STEP)

CCTC’s Summer Therapeutic Enrichment Program provides a summer camp experience for children ages 6 through 14 who struggle in conventional summer camp settings due to behavioral challenges. Through the creation of a therapeutic recreational environment children are able to enjoy summer camp while also learning emotional regulation, social skills, and symptom management.

Like all CCTC programs, STEP provides highly individualized treatment. The therapeutic curriculum for each STEP group is created specifically for the population of children who are enrolled each summer. The program is customized to keep campers engaged while they learn new skills and build on the positive skills already in their repertoire. As children learn the skills to control their behavior and manage their emotions, they become better able to increase socialization with peers and minimize negative behavior.
