Students with Down syndrome regress at alarming rates during the summer when school is not in session. That often means the first few months of each school year are spent relearning previously introduced concepts. As a result, DSACK created Summer Enrichment Camps. Working with our education specialists, each student will work on one math and one reading goal during camp,  In addition, music therapy, art therapy, and social skills will be integrated throughout the day.
