What to Expect
Always deferring to each child’s physical, medical, mental and psychological condition, we concentrate on AFFIRMING each one’s individual worth, talent and gifts while teaching them personal and interpersonal coping skills. This is done individually and within the group. At Chalfonte House in Elk Rapids, or activities in Detroit, we focus on fun events and activities with which the child would not be familiar, especially those involving nature, outdoors, the environment and the arts. Thus, there is no TV, videogames, internet or CELL PHONES permitted. Campers should be prepared to participate in and view their experiences as outside those in which they are accustomed.
