The Take2 is a therapeutic summer camp for children approximately 7-11 years old who have difficulty making and keeping friends because of brain-based differences that impede their functioning in the social world. Our children want to be social; we offer them the tools and support they require to understand the complexities of social interaction.

Dates and Fees:

The dates for Summer 2016 are July 5 - July 29. Children are required to attend all four weeks of camp. Tuition is $3000. We have a generous scholarship program and accept campers regardless of the family's ability to pay in whole or part.

Size of Program:

We recognize that there is a large demand for this kind of program. We enroll 12-16 children. However, many of these slots are already filled by returning campers. We regret, therefore, that we will be unable to accept many of the children who apply.

Admissions Timeline:

  • Take2 is still accepting applications for Summer 2016.

We have a rolling admissions policy and fill most slots at the time of the first meet & greet.

Thie meet and greet is a low key, small group event where we get to know the children and they get to ask questions about camp. Take2's admissions committee will make a decision about the match; priority is based on application date as well as the candidates fit/match with the group. The meet and greet will occur prior to the beginning of camp.

Take2 Summer Camp will notify parents about admission decisions.

To Apply:
