Our Summer Programs, taught by certified special education teachers, is designed specifically for special education students ages 18+ seeking a life-skills focused summer program to supplement their education.
The 9 a.m-3 p.m. day begins with classes, including Navigating the Supermarket, Cooking for Independence, and Math, Money and Living Within Your Means. After lunch (prepared during Cooking for Independence), summer students have an opportunity to socialize with Chapel Haven’s REACH students.
Chapel Haven offers a Residential Summer Program for 18+ year olds, who are still in high school and ready to experience transitional independent living. Since 2002 we have offered a successful and popular Summer Residential Program. We offer a comprehensive, eight-week program focusing on daily living skills, functional academics and social recreational activities geared to summer fun. This is the perfect alternative to summer camp, particularly when future planning includes a transitional living program. In addition to offering a young adult the opportunity to have an “away from home” experience, our Residential Summer Program will afford the student a preview of “what happens after high school.”
