Summer Camps Abuse Prevention Program

ASAP's abuse-prevention program is being used to ensure healthly physical and behavorial interactions and safety.  It includes a Director's Guide, screening protocol, staff training - animated videos and a test for certification and guidelines for parents.  It raises the standards of camps and camp staff in a respectful and innovative way and reduces liability.  By providing trainings and implementing safety measures, camps will be sending a message to counselors, campers, and parents that they are educated, aware, and will not tolerate abuse.

Learning Environment & Curricula

Create an environment that provides learning experiences that meet each individual’s needs, capabilities, and interests in ways that complement developmental tasks in all domains.

Competency Aspiration

Provide support for the development of learning skills that complement individual learning styles to minimize learning loss, increase learning readiness, and acquire specific content knowledge appropriate to the camp’s mission and goals.
