Forman Summer Program | Summer Coed Boarding & Day Camp for Students With Learning Differences

The Forman Summer Program, a coed boarding and day camp, takes place on the Forman School campus in Litchfield, CT, during the month of July. The program is a dynamic balance of academics and recreation for students entering grades 7-11 who learn differently.

Under the guidance of expert faculty and staff, students discover their unique learning styles, while being inspired, challenged, and empowered. They develop effective and tactical classroom and study strategies, learn self-advocacy, and gain lasting confidence in their abilities.

About the Forman Summer Program

At the Forman Summer Program, mornings are spent working with teachers in a tight-knit class setting, averaging six students per class. In courses from math comprehension to reading and writing, teachers build on students’ individual strengths and address key challenges, leveraging best-in-class learning strategies and assistive technologies. All students take three focused courses, which provide tailored instructions based on their unique learning profiles.

Afternoons are defined by each student’s passion, providing the chance to deepen an existing one or discover new interests. On a 125-acre campus and at local facilities, students participate in two to four activities of their choice daily, including golf, tennis, soccer, swimming, fishing, rock climbing, fitness training, boat building, horseback riding, and more.

Evenings are enriched with community events that nurture personal growth, a positive mindset, and interpersonal skills. Weekends include on-and-off-campus activities, from sports to arts and team building. During Saturday expeditions, students enjoy the natural beauty of summer in northwest Connecticut. On Sundays, students have the option of trips to movies, shopping, or neighboring homemade ice cream shops.

What They’re Saying About Forman School

“Everyone that goes or will go to Forman has a story. Forman is a place where they listen and understand your story. They will take the time to help, nurture and allow you to grow. It has been only one year for our son and our family to experience what Forman can offer and it has changed our lives for the better. There are no words to truly express our gratitude to the teachers and staff who work so hard to make our kids feel like they can achieve anything they set their minds to.”
