Student Development is currently hosting several Individual Camp ABLE sessions throughout the district for any/all interested elementary schools. That’s right…we are bringing the Camp ABLE program to your school!The sessions will run from 3:40 – 5:00 p.m. in your gym and can include up to 25 – 30 5th grade students. A light snack and drink will be served to the students before we get started. All participating schools should have a date reserved.Camp ABLE sessions focus on support, empowerment, positive identity, and bullying behaviors. All of the activities that we introduce are designed to embrace each student even if he or she is not comfortable in the spotlight. Students seem to get more from the experience while participating with their peers at their own school.Recent Student Evaluation Form Responses:What is the most important lesson that you feel you have learned today from Camp ABLE?a. “Correct response to a bully!”b.” To respect and help each other!”c. “Listen to other peoples ideas and respect their ideas!”Would you recommend Camp ABLE to your friends?a.“Yes, because it builds self respect!”b.“Yes, because it helped me build confidence!”c.”Yes, because it teaches you the value of friends!”
