Harbor Haven's core areas include swimming instruction, sports instruction, art, music, and nature/science. In addition, we promote many skills through karate, yoga, bicycle riding instruction, photography, cooking instruction, and the performing arts such as drama and dance.
These program areas are run by adult specialists with knowledge and certifications in their content area as well as experience in working with children with special needs. They are teachers or other professionals such as mental health workers and therapists.
Our unique and intense staff training program emphasizes the fact that although we want children to have fun in their summer program, it is fun with many purposes in mind. In the areas mentioned above there is a focused, systematic way of helping children to better their skills thereby learning to feel pride in what they have accomplished. In addition, they learn to listen and follow directions as well as accepting and following rules.
