Welcome to the North Carolina Summer Program for Kids, a highly structured, fun, and supportive summer day camp program for 7 to 13-year-olds with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD).
We understand that children with AD/HD need many of the same things
that other kids need in the summer: outdoor fun, new experiences, and
the chance to make new friends. We also know that they would benefit from keeping up with their school work and learning skills to help them
in their relationships with peers. The NC Summer Program for Kids is
specifically designed to improve children’s:
specialized skills that enhance parent-child relations and improve behavior.
The NC Summer Program for Kids brings together the expertise of two area leaders in helping families with AD/HD: the AD/HD Clinic at the University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNCG) and Noble Academy. The program will take place on the campus of Noble Academy and run on weekdays from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, from Monday, June 17th through Friday, August 2nd, with a break from July 3rd through 5th in observance of Independence Day.
The NC Summer Program for Kids 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 NC Summer Program for Kids is the only program in North Carolina modeled after Dr. Pelham’s STP.
