About Us

Camp Sequoia is an overnight summer camp for boys ages 7-17 to experience social skills success in a dynamic and nurturing environment. Served by a high energy co-ed staff, many of our campers are diagnosed with Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Located on the beautiful campus of The Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, Pennsylvania (1 hour northwest of Philadelphia) our innovative program integrates building Frustration Tolerance research as presented at the Global Gifted Conference by Camp Leadership with a innovative social skills development framework to help campers develop their social thinking skills through a FUN active, traditional camp program.

Camp Sequoia is designed for children and teenagers with ADHD and other similar diagnoses who do not need the level of support offered at special needs overnight camps yet need a different experience than a traditional overnight camp can offer. Our 2:5 staffing ratio allows our campers to have fun and grow in a safe and supportive camp experience.

Fun Fact

The owner and director has been on six continents working with children. Camp Sequoia is the first camp in North America to focus on our particular population of campers using a research based approach.
