Camp Buckskin has dedicated over 50 years to serving youth with AD/HD, Learning Disabilities, Aspergers Syndrome, or similar needs. Camp Buckskin provides a mixture of traditional camp and some academic activities each day, in addition to a Personal Growth program, which addresses social skill development. In this program we work to help our campers learn to build and maintain positive peer relations, to become more self reliant, and to develop better problem solving/coping skills. As a result of this growth, our campers return home with greater self-confidence and a strengthened self-concept.
