ErinoakKids offers a variety of therapeutic summer program each year for children and youth currently receiving services at ErinoakKids.

The programs listed are available for clients currently receiving services at ErinoakKids. Since these are therapeutic programs, please be sure that your child meets all of the criteria before registering. 

Please note that in person summer programs are now full. Spaces for virtual programs are still available.  

For all virtual programs, we require a parent or guardian remain present in the room while the child is participating to supervise and offer assistance as needed.
