At Catalyst Camps, each day is an opportunity for creativity, independence, social skill development, making friends, and developing leadership skills in a fun atmosphere.
From creative arts to flag & noodle football, we believe there are many ways to explore new opportunities for youth to grow. This summer, we have modified many of our traditional activities to integrate more independence and incorporate intensive health and safety protocols to adhere to Covid-19 safety guidelines.
Curriculum-based skill building activities change weekly in topic or ongoing projects are designed for campers to engage with hands-on and full sensory experience with materials, concepts, and collaborate with peers while working together and independently.
Camper initiated and camper-led activities provide opportunities for youth to take ownership of their schedules and hone their interests. Our staff support campers in exercising voice and choice, to create their own activity plan and develop leadership skills.
