FAQ for Summer Programs

How do I know my child is a fit for the SEC summer camp programs?
  • If you see a summer camp that interests you, contact our Program Specialist (michelle@socialenrichmentcenter.com) or call our office 610-853-2898 to discuss your child’s individual needs.  We work with each family to find the best possible placement for your child.
What ages are accepted for the Teen Camp?
  • Our teen camp is targeted for children and adolescents ranging from 12-19.  We do have a flexible age range. This camp is designed to support skills needed for preteens and teens entering middle school, currently in middle school, in high school, or transitioning out of high school.  During the intake evaluation we work with families to make the best placement in any of our camps.
How many children attend the camps?
  • Each summer camp varies in size.  We intentionally keep our numbers low to ensure  the best possible child to facilitator ratio.  We create groups of 3-5 children and our ratio is 5:2.  Many of our summer programs will have a ratio of 2:1.
How do I customize my child’s program?
  • All of our available services are options for your child’s summer camp program.  SEC works with families to understand the wants, interests and needs of each child and then develops activities based around this.  As a parent, you can look at the available services list and have any of them implemented specifically into your child’s summer camp experience.

What does camp cost?
  • Please contact our office for a complete pricing list.  We accept cash, check, and credit cards as payment.  We also offer payment plans upon request.
How do I enroll my child in one (or more) of the camps?
  • The enrollment process includes two steps.  First, email our Programming Specialist Michelle@socialenrichmentcenter.com to receive the necessary paperwork.  Second, schedule an intake meeting.  An intake is: a 30-40 minute meeting with  a facilitator and your child.  During this time, we will get to know your child and discuss summer program options.
Busing and Transportation
  • Parents are responsible for transportation to and from our facility.  Parents can make arrangements with their school districts for busing, but this is solely on the parents to arrange.
Snack and Lunch
  • All snacks and lunch are provided by parents.  If your camper is enrolled in the full day Six Week Summer Camp or the Teen Summer Camp you will need to provide your camper with lunch and a snack. For morning or afternoon camps, parents will provide a snack for the day.  Please note we are a nut free facility.
Do you require a deposit?
  • Yes.  There is a $100 deposit nonrefundable due by June1st.  This deposit will reserve your child’s place in the program and it will be applied to your summer camp tuition.
Does the SEC take insurance for summer camps?
  • We do not currently accept insurance.  We do however work with families to provide CPT codes for possible insurance reimbursement.  Contact us for further information and support about this process.
ESY?
  • ESY services are negotiated between families and their individual school districts.  It is not included in our registration process.  Parents should check directly with their districts to see if your child qualifies for ESY services at the SEC.
