We are happy to announce that we will once again be offering the North Carolina Summer Program for Kids (NCSPK) in 2014.
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 camp will run Monday-Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm, June 16th - July 31st, with a break in activities during the July 4th holiday week. Enrollment is limited to 36 children.

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, sports skills, and self-esteem.  In addition to daily behavioral and educational programming, children have opportunities for sports, arts and crafts, swimming, and weekly field trips. Parents also have weekly opportunities to learn specialized skills that improve parent-child relations and home behavior. 



Our first ever NCSPK in 2013 was very successful!

“I have been looking for something like this for years! We look forward to next summer.”
“The NC Summer Program was the perfect answer for my child’.”

“I liked making friends.”
“I learned how to be respectful and to control my behavior.”
   

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.
