PEERS® Summer Bootcamps

Welcome to PEERS® Summer Bootcamps 2024!
 
PEERS® boot camps are designed to teach evidence-based social skills for the enhancement of the ability of individuals to foster meaningful connections while gaining self confidence in social situations. Small groups are designed for adolescents, teens, young adults, and adults. Attendees are presented with targeted skills through didactic instructions, role-play demonstrations, and the opportunity to practice the newly learned skills through behavioral rehearsal exercises. Boot camp sessions run daily for two weeks, teaching direct skills. Examples of skills taught include but not are limited to entering and exiting conversations, use of electronic communication, choosing appropriate friendships, get togethers and handling disagreements..
 
Participants will gather Monday through Friday from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM, in the Neurodiversity Success Center, situated on the picturesque campus of Hill Top Preparatory School. These sessions will be led by experienced and certified PEERS® instructors, ensuring a supportive and enriching environment for all. Parents will also meet together twice a week for a workshop on how to best support their students in achieving their goals.
 
The cost for the program is $1,200 per two-week session. If you would like to learn more or register, please or complete the form below or contact Mia Henry at [email protected]
