Have to Say About Sequoia

Camp Sequoia is designed for children and teenagers with ADHD and other similar diagnoses who do not need the level of support offered at special needs overnight camps yet need a different experience than a traditional overnight camp can offer. Our 2:5 staffing ratio allows our campers to have fun and grow in a safe and supportive camp experience.

Parents choose Camp Sequoia because the experience we provide is much more than a summer camp. It is truly an investment in their child’s future success. The mission of Sequoia is to help our campers have a great time while developing their social cognition (how to think in a social context and apply socially related skills).

Sequoia also offers social skill and recreational programs during the school year for Philadelphia, NYC and Washington DC area children and teenagers diagnosed with ADHD. These school year programs feature our Director Brian Lux, Associate Director Reema, a Registered Nurse, and our best staff to provide incredible experiences for our campers.

I learned how to independently live at Camp Sequoia, and I would not be able to live at college if I hadn’t come. I made some strong friendships there, and I learned a lot about interacting with people.JustinAlumni Camper

The camp offers the perfect balance of activities and the staff willingly accommodates individual needs. I would recommend Sequoia for any boy who struggles with ADHD or social skills. The camp understands these kids.Melissa, (Parent of an 9 year old twice-exceptional young man)
