What is Camp Big Tree?

This course is designed for boys and girls, 12-16 years old, with sensory processing disorders, learning and/or attention deficits, as well as developmental disabilities.  BOEC requires that all students be fully independent with self-care tasks or be prepared to bring a “buddy” to camp.  Through outdoor activities, designed around established experiential education models, students will have the opportunity to develop social skills, teamwork traits and leadership qualities that will transfer into everyday life.  This is a mobile course that begins at BOEC’s program site in Breckenridge, CO.  Students will be involved in cooking, cleaning and gear preparation during the course; however, the emphasis will be on having fun in a structured setting.

Included in trip cost:

Food, specialty gear such as life jackets, tents, etc., transportation while on course and 24-hour instruction/supervision by BOEC professional staff.
