Time Out from School. This is our unique and signature program specially created for students who need a temporary break from their home school.  Located at Valley Mill Camp in Germantown, Maryland, the program was developed in 2011 and is comprised of a variety of activities including, but not necessarily limited to the following:

  • academic tutoring
  • horseback riding
  • outdoor adventure activities (climbing, hiking, kayaking, archery/air rifle)
  • opportunities for community service
  • chess
  • individual therapy available as needed

The program is customized for each individual or small groups of students.

Time Out from School will improve a student's self-esteem, help develop life-long skills, prevent residential treatment in certain cases and help promote family preservation.  We believe that multi-sensory, experiential opportunities are beneficial for all children, especially for children with disabilities. If this program sounds right for your child, please contact us today.
