Postsecondary Education Preview Overnight Summer Camp

2023 Summer Camp Attendees holding up J sign for Jaguars.


PEP Summer Camp is excited to announce that in addition to offering a 2-night, 3-day camp for 16-18 year old students with intellectual disabilities and a second camp for 19-27 year-old adults interested in exploring a postsecondary education experience, PEP Summer camp is hosting a day camp during the same time frames.

All Campers will participate in mini classes and receive an individualized plan detailing the skills to enhance their postsecondary education readiness, independent living, and employment skills. 

Overnight Campers will be assigned private rooms in a USA residential hall and eat on campus. At least one chaperone per 5 campers will be provided in the residential halls, including direct overnight supervision.
