The camps focus on building social skills and independent living skills, and will include community outings and fun activities.
Topics of the camps include getting to know new people, staying safe during peer pressure, exploring careers, how to treat wildlife, and how to travel safely in the community
The camps will include trips to the Corning Museum of Glass and the Brick Tavern Museum in Montour Falls to learn about local history. Participants will also visit a local ice cream shop to find out what a summer job is like.
Each week will conclude with a picnic with games and food.
