Camp Buckskin



The typical camper at Buckskin has an attentional disorder, a learning disability or Asperger's syndrome and, as a result, has experienced social-skill difficulties, diminished academic success and self-esteem issues. Regularly scheduled activities include canoeing, swimming, nature studies, arts and crafts, archery, riflery and reading, in addition to electives and field trips. A formalized social skills program addresses such areas as interpersonal communication, problem solving, initiative and task completion.
