We are excitedly planning this year's North Carolina Summer Program for Kids (NCSPK)!The NCSPK is a highly structured, fun, and supportive summer day camp program for 7 to 13-year-old children with
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
The NCSPK is a unique summer day treatment program that brings together the expertise of the ADHD Clinic at UNCG and its partner, Noble Academy. The goals of NCSPK are to improve self-control, friendships, academic skills, organizational skills, sports skills, and self-esteem. In addition to daily behavioral and educational programming, children have opportunities for sports, arts and crafts, swimming, Bricks 4 Kidz, and weekly field trips. Parents also have weekly opportunities to learn specialized skills that improve parent-child relations and home behavior.
What do families say about NCSPK?
“I have been looking for something like this for years! We look forward to next summer.”
“I liked making friends.”
The NCSPK is a modified version of the highly successful Summer Treatment Program (STP) that was originally developed by Dr. William E. Pelham. Due to its consistent research support and strong appeal to parents and children alike, the STP has been recognized as a model program by numerous national groups, including the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the national support group, Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD). There are currently more than 25 STPs in locations across the country and in other parts of the world. The NCSPK is the only program in North Carolina modeled after Dr. Pelham’s STP.
