The Infinite U ​Summer Camp 2019
2019 marks the 8th season of The Infinite U Summer Camp program!
When the usual structure of the school year fades away, kids who thrive on routine and structured activities can be left with elevated anxiety, possible loneliness, and risk of screen addiction. The Infinite U Camp Program provides a fun opportunity for youth to get out of the house and play, move their bodies, build self and social confidence, practice their social communication, grow friendships, foster resiliency, reduces stress, and more! This camp is a great fit for Asperger's, Autism, ADHD, anxiety, learning differences, twice exceptional, and other gifted/sensitivity.

Groups

Many teens and tweens who think in unique ways can feel isolated, misunderstood, or lonely. Our weekly social groups provide a space where individuals are accepted for who they are and as they are, embraced in their strengths, uniqueness, sensitivity, challenges, and all. "Social mistakes" are met with compassion, forgiveness, and are seen as an opportunity to practice. Expression of innate creativity and wisdom is a core value of these groups. 


The Infinite Teen Community: Tuesdays (currently full)

Areas of focus include:

~self-awareness  ~self-regulation  ~confidence  ~social awareness  ~social communication  ~healthy boundaries

The teens describe this as a "friendship group" that uses play, yoga, nature, movement, and games to support social awareness, navigate conflict, enhance social communication, and create a sense of belonging with other teens who struggle to make or keep friends.  

This group was created to serve teens who are/identify with one or more of the following: Asperger's, Autistic with a high degree of independence, ADHD, Twice Exceptional, learning differences, anxiety, highly sensitive, easily overwhelmed, and/or who have a hard time socially/making friends/keeping friends.

The Infinite Teen Community: Older Teens (currently just monthly social nights, space available)

where high school students who feel "different" are accepted as they are


∞Do you often feel “different”? That you don’t quite fit in or belong?
∞Do you have a lot of deep thoughts?
∞Have you ever been called “an old soul?”
∞Do you ever feel like an “alien” who got dropped off here on planet Earth?
∞Do you ever wonder why you’re here or feel “too sensitive” for this harsh world?
∞Do you feel misunderstood?

∞Do you find yourself wondering why people can be so mean and cruel to each other, to animals, to the environment?
∞Do you wish you knew other teens who think and feel like you do?

This is a space where high school students come to be themselves, as they are, in all their brilliance, uniqueness, quirks, challenges, curiosities, and confusion...where they speak their mind, navigate obstacles, build friendships, cultivate resiliency, share their feelings and ideas, grow their confidence, philosophize about world issues, and are respected and appreciated for who they are. 


We talk, we laugh, we play, we cry, we get mad, we move, we be...together. 


This group welcomes neurodivergent and neurotypical teens alike. We are comprised of teens who are kind, wise, thoughtful, deep, have a lot to say (although may be shy), funny, passionate, creative, and purpose-driven. We welcome diversity in all forms.

 

Meets from 6-8pm weekly in Boulder with monthly social nights. Monthly membership is $250 + small activity fee

The Infinite T(w)een Community: (not actively running)

where neurodivergent middle schoolers know that they belong

Middle School can be an especially challenging time for kids who feel "different" from their peers or who have a hard time making or keeping friends. It is also a time of great change as kids navigate puberty and adjust to their changing body.  This weekly social group provides a safe space of belonging to practice social communication and create friendships. We will develop more flexible thinking, perspective taking, self and social awareness, gain confidence in being a part of a group, and grow our overall social confidence.  This group incorporates games, movement, somatic practices, and other activities. 

This group was created to serve middle school students who are/identify with one or more of the following: Asperger's, Autistic with a high degree of independence, ADHD, Twice Exceptional, learning differences, anxiety, highly sensitive, easily overwhelmed, and/or who have a hard time socially/making friends/keeping friends.​


Core Intentions of The Infinite Teen and T(w)een Communities :
∞ I feel safe in my body
∞ I choose thoughts and actions that help me be my best
∞ I love, respect, & value myself & others
∞ I understand my emotions & how to regulate them
∞ I feel connected to others
∞ I navigate obstacles with courage & strength
∞ I trust my inner wisdom & use it to help myself & others
∞ I am perfect as I am…there is nothing wrong with me
∞ The world is better with me in it…my light can help others​
