In order to reach more children and families, the New Hampshire Summer Program has added 10-16 additional slots for boys and girls ages 7-18.
First year research data from the Wediko Transitions Project shows an increase in the frequency of prosocial behaviors and a decrease in withdrawal and aggressive behaviors towards peers and adults.

Wediko's 45-day Summer Program is the nation's oldest short term residential treatment facility; since 1934, the program has been a model of excellence in serving youth and families struggling with social, emotional, and learning issues. The 450-acre waterfront campus is a therapeutic milieu for children ages 7 to 18, combining the activity-based structure of a summer camp with the academic instruction and intensive clinical intervention of a residential school. Working closely with each child's family, school, and referral agencies, Wediko strives to return each child to his or her home and school with a renewed sense of competence and hope.
With the summer quickly approaching, time is of the essence! Children and families seeking the comprehensive psychological and educational services that the New Hampshire Summer Program provides are encouraged to apply.
