The Dragon Academy Summer Program

The Dragon Academy is a summer camp program that mentors kids with ADHD to train their dragons (barriers to success); master their emotions, confront academic challenges, and attain skills to deal with unfriendly classmates and bullying. Kids will discover their strengths and use them to meet life’s challenges.
