By | April 2nd, 2018|

Daymark Living is launching Texas’ first Summer Camp program that simulates and fosters independent living for individuals with intellectual and developmental delays (IDD) aged 16 years and older.

Daymark Living, a state-of-the-art residential community dedicated to helping adults age 18+ with IDD live, learn and thrive, is currently pre-leasing for their grand-opening later this summer.

This summer will also kick off the start of Daymark Summer Semester, a day camp where participants will attend a variety of classes, all geared toward supporting students in their quest to gain meaningful employment and foster independence. Sessions are available on a weekly basis, from July 9 through August 17. Courses fall into four main categories: horticulture, fine arts, culinary, and health and wellness. Day camp runs from 8:30 am until 4:00 pm and includes lunch in the community’s dining hall. Each weekly session costs $500 to attend.
