Summer Camps

We give local children the experience of learning all about horses and gaining experience that can help them in everyday life. Our horses are specially trained to be calm and docile when working with people with special needs and disabilities, so they have great personalities. They are excellent at teaching leadership, respect, trust, empathy, compassion, assertiveness without aggression, and more.

The Arc of Rowan summer day program

The Arc of Rowan Summer Day Program is a six-week program, June 26 through Aug. 3, operating from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m., at three locations — North Rowan High School, South Rowan High School and Granite Quarry Elementary School.

The program offers training in self-help skills, academics, personal and social skills, sensory development, communication skills and gross/fine motor skills.

Daily activities include educational and social experiences for children according to their needs established in their Individual Education Plan (IEP), including indoor and outdoor activities and weekly field trips.

This program allows children to maintain and practice academic skills from their Individual Education Plan that would not be taught during the summer. The goal is to provide an educational, safe and fun opportunity during the summer.

The progress that each child makes during the summer is very rewarding — a child being able to complete a math problem on his or her own, learning to tie their shoes, learning to read new words, writing the words and or sentences down, learning to socialize with other peers appropriately, transitioning from one thing to another, are examples.

The Arc of Rowan Summer Day Program is licensed and approved according to standards established by the NC Child Day Care Licensing Division and the Division of Mental Health/Mental Retardation/Substance Abuse Services, and is reviewed and evaluated annually.

Staff is required to take part in training, including but not limited to: First Aid/CPR and Basic School Aged Curriculum Training (BSAC). All staff members have to take part in finger printing, criminal background checks and federal registry as required by the state.

For pricing, contact the office at 108 Dorsett St., call 704-637-1521 or email ssapp@thearcofrowan.org
