CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE IN SUMMER PROGRAMMING!
Welcome to Harbor Haven!
Harbor Haven offers comprehensive summer programming for children with mild special needs.
Harbor Haven is a unique summer camp program which provides children with a social and educational experience that bridges the gap between school years. In a nurturing, camp-like environment, children engage in a variety of traditional summer activites combined with strong support for the academic, therapeutic, and social needs described in their IEP.
Harbor Haven's Reverse Inclusion experience invites non-IEP peers into our camper groups.
This innovative and effective program provides the perfect opportunity for our special needs children to experience friendship, activities and interaction with amazing similar aged role models who have been carefully chosen to enhance their summer learning. Your special needs child will derive all the benefit and none of the difficulties that can occur in other inclusive settings not designed especially for them. Acclaimed since the summer of 2013, Harbor Haven takes great pride in this one-of-a-kind inclusion program. Click here for more information.

Where Children Can Learn, Grow and Have Fun
Commitment to Excellence
We are committed to providing our Harbor Haven children with a safe, happy, healthy, fun-filled summer where growth and improvement of important skills takes place.
Through a variety of nurturing programs, in a relaxed and supportive environment, we build “success” into the everyday experience, thereby increasing confidence and self-esteem.
Our focus on language, motor, attention, cognitive, social and behavior skills is infused in all of our many activities. We believe that the capacity to socialize with other children is fundamental for healthy growth and development. Our program, imbedded with intensive social skills also includes an instructional social skills program which prepares children to be successful in the world around them.
Ease your child's transition back to school in the fall, and help prevent academic and skill regression by giving your child the Harbor Haven summer experience!
