All camps will be held at the Blackstock Center located at 700 McPherson Road in Ft. Worth,
These camps will specifically teach two Social Thinking concepts daily.
The Social Thinking® model is a developmental and behavioral approach that teaches social
behavior, communication, and thinking concepts to individuals challenged in these areas.
Students learn the “language” of social reasoning to help them “think” about appropriate
social skills in a variety of settings and environments.
For more information, contact Fran Templeton, 817-454-6501 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Using scientifically validated techniques and curriculum, the camp will teach life skills,
meaningful jobs, and prepare campers for a step up to the next level of independence.
Come fall, the camp will convert to a group home.
Campers will have the option of staying on as residents in the Fall.
