Wediko's Summer Program - started in 1934 by Dr. Robert A. Young - is a 45-day residential treatment program for boys and girls ages 6-18 who struggle with ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, social and behavioral issues, depression, anxiety, Asperger's Disorder, adoption/attachment disorder and long term foster care.

Harry W. Parad, PhD, Executive Director, began working at Wediko in 1965 at the New Hampshire Summer Program, and earned his PhD in Clinical Psychology at Chapel Hill. Financial Director Patricia Fries, MSM, has worked Wediko's Summer Program since 1974; Assistant Financial Director Terri D. Hamer has been at Wediko since 1994; Development Manager Patrick Ryan, LICSW, MBA, began his work at Wediko in 1997 and Special Projects Coordinator, Judith A. King, PhD, began working at Wediko in 1981.

Students reside in cabins with staff members, simulating a family-like atmosphere. Each group is managed by a clinical team that works to identify areas of change, encouraging students to practice and develop skills for positive change in their relationships with family and peers. Daily group therapy and Wediko's summer academic program "Think City" addresses school-related behavior issues and learning disabilities. Through experiential classrooms and activities, students experience academic, social and emotional success.

Summer activities include swimming, kayaking, music and theatre, biking, fishing, canoeing, dance, art and athletics.
