The camps will be led by OLS Bellevue College instructors and staff. All our staff members are highly trained experts with a background in teaching students with disabilities. They will lead attendees of the camps through a variety of engaging activities and discussions, lending their years of experience and expertise with workforce development to help attendees explore their post-high school transition options.
We use researched-based instructional strategies that allow access for students of different experiences and abilities to our specialized curriculum focused on social thinking, critical thinking, and problem solving.
In order to benefit from our curriculum and engage in the group activities that are an integral part of the learning process, campers must be High School or Transition students, ages 16 to 19 (ages 19 to 21 will be considered on a case-by-case basis), with at least 60 IQ or higher intellectual functioning. OLS staff is not licensed nor certified to provide any kind of personal care (including but not limited to feeding, medicating, toileting, or transporting).
All camps will take place on the Bellevue College Main Campus, 3000 Landerholm Circle SE Bellevue, WA 98007.
Both camps will be covering the same material and information. In order to provide the opportunity to attend for as many people as possible, we are not able to have you attend multiple camps at this time.
If you are unable to attend both weeks due to availability, that is fine, but you will be charged for the full cost of the camp, regardless if you attend less than the full two weeks.
Due to space constraints we are unable to accommodate splitting attendance between the two camps.
The Skills For Work Summer Camp is not for credit and is therefore ineligible for financial aid and/or scholarships.
We are not partnering with DDA at this time.
