Camp Big Tree 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.

Application Deadline:

Applications will be accepted until one month prior to course start. Applicants will be screened for appropriateness by BOEC upon receipt of a completed application packet and deposit receiving and application.
