ESO Summer Camp - Adult Summer Program in Erie, PA

ESO Summer Camp is held at the Barber National Institute Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. This is a recreational summer camp. If assistance is needed to support physical, medical and/or behavioral needs, an aide, Therapeutic Support Staff (TSS), or nurse must be present at all times with your camper. Our main priority is the safety of the campers.

Campers can attend the program for any part of the session, but must attend at least one full week. Applications will be accepted based on whether the camp is an appropriate match for the camper. There are limited spaces available. Families will be notified of their acceptance.

ESO Summer Camp is an allowable service of Family Support Services, Agency with Choice, or private pay. For more information, please contact Heather Rodriguez at 814-874-5685.
