Come Experience the “Journey to Success”

LD & ADHD Summer Camp

For over 35 years, SOAR camps for kids with ADHD / ADD and LD have helped youth with learning differences develop self-confidence, social skills and life skills. Campers participate in exciting adventure activities such as rock climbing, horseback riding, SCUBA diving, llama treks, whitewater rafting, surfing, and much more! We are proud to be accredited by the American Camp Association.

SOAR staff and instructors provide a community where campers are celebrated for their gifts, where they come to make friends, and where they have the freedom to be themselves. Everything we do at SOAR is based upon helping campers experience success and providing them with the tools and strategies to continue building upon that success. Campers will develop self-confidence, life skills, and build friendships while experiencing a variety of exciting adventures.

Our camps offer adventure activities, for beginners and beyond, located across the country’s most scenic places. These incredible locations include the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, the sunny Florida Keys, wild and wonderful Wyoming, the California Coast, and the Adirondacks region of New York. We also offer international camp courses in tropical Belize (offered in 2018) and Costa Rica.

In addition to our camps for kids with ADHD / ADD, and LD, we provide a Spring Family Weekend adventure each May for campers of all ages, and a winter break program, Christmas in the Florida Keys, located down in the Florida Keys, for ages 8 to 18. Our Peru Spanish Immersion course, offered each summer through the Academy at SOAR gives students the opportunity to gain Spanish I or Spanish II credit.

Traditional Summer Camp vs. ADHD Summer Camp

Every child can benefit from a summer camp experience. Some benefits include becoming more confident, developing independence, making new friends, a willingness to try new things, and a chance to gain new and unique experiences. For kids with ADHD and other learning disabilities, these benefits can be harder to obtain at a traditional camp. By choosing an ADHD summer camp or some other specialized program for your child’s needs, you can feel more confident that your child’s experience will be positive and impactful. Specialized programs typically have a lower staff to camper ratio, utilize a more in depth training period to cover situations and challenges that may occur, and spend more time getting to know your child’s individual needs and goals. If you would like to learn more or want to make sure SOAR will be a good fit for your child, please contact our Admissions Office at or at 828-456-3435.

My Camp Experience

"SOAR provides an opportunity for [campers] to get away from the “easy activities” they seem to gravitate to—video games, computers and TV—and into really life-changing activities that require them to grow as individuals. [My son] came back more focused and mature, and more willing to take responsibility for his self."
