SUMMER CAMP

Dr. Hallowell’s ADHD Family Summer Camp

July 2019, Dates TBD, Michigan

13th Season

Dr Hallowell and Rob Himburg have created a one-of-a-kind weeklong camp for families. Children and parents attend separate morning sessions throughout the week, then have the afternoon and evenings to spend together. Dr Hallowell works with the parents and Rob works with the children. Parents participate in a highly interactive discussion-based seminar with Dr Hallowell, while the children work and play in a highly experiential adventure learning program created by Rob. The combination of the parallel programs can have an exponential growth effect for families – transforming past patterns and opening the way for better communication, understanding and connection. An additional children’s camp is also available for siblings.

From childhood through adulthood, ADHD can present both difficult dilemmas as well as unique opportunities for change, growth and success. Dr Hallowell’s goal is to help people master the power of ADHD while avoiding its pitfalls. When the diagnosis of ADHD emphasizes what is wrong with a person, that person immediately starts to see himself in negative terms. Shame, fear and self-doubt grow. However, when the treatment of ADHD begins with an effort to find what is good and useful and powerful in a person and ferrets out their often hidden talents while emphasizing what’s valuable, then the person sees him or herself in a positive light.
