Life Skills Camp for Young Adults

In addition to the Summer Immersion Experience,
Transitions also offers weeklong camps for young adults
interested in exploring certain aspects of independent
living more in-depth.

At these camps, students will not only receive instruction in skills that will serve them for the rest
of their lives, they will also experience all the fun the Adirondacks can offer, with
outdoor excursions and arts enrichment classes alike!
Students can attend camps just for the day or they can stay overnight in Transitions apartments.

Succeeding Socially

January 9-14, 2022 for Residential Students, January 10-14, 2022 for Day Scholars

This camp is dedicated to helping campers become comfortable and fluent in any social situation. Do you feel uneasy in different social situations? Do you not know what to say or how to build lasting relationships? Do you want to build your “friends base” with like-minded people? Our certified instructors will help you meet all those goals and more through the PEERS® curriculum, community activities and events that reinforce the skills learned and help you feel confident in all social situations. The camp will also teach acceptance, tolerance, safety when meeting and building relationships, and appropriate interpersonal skills. Interspersed with social education will be fun recreation activities such as painting, sculpting, culinary classes, theater and yoga.
