Summer 2019: June 30 – August 10

The Summer Program at Maplebrook offers students a chance at a fun-filled 2-6 weeks of strengthening social skills while maintaining an academic edge throughout the summer break. 

Maplebrook’s Summer Program has two different tracks: an Academy track for younger students (ages 11-16) and a Postsecondary track for older students (ages 17-21).

Mornings are spent by both groups working on academic skills. Academy students have afternoons set aside for activities—like local hikes, making ice cream, swimming, and educational field trips—while Postsecondary summer students spend their afternoons in work placements. All students have time scheduled in the evenings for Independent Living Skills and Recreation.
