Summer Programs

Hours:  Monday – Friday
Lilla G. Frederick Pilot Middle School
Washington Irving Middle School
Dates:  July, August
Fee:  Nominal fee, with a sliding scale

Each summer, AIP runs highly regarded summer camps at both the Irving and Frederick Schools.  Open to all students at the host school, AIP’s Summer Programs offer campers a well-rounded experience that balances enrichment, exploration, and excitement within an informal educational context.  As continuations of our school-year therapeutic afterschool programs, both camps serve students with behavioral and emotional difficulties alongside their peers.  In addition, with our flexible, split-day schedule, we welcome children attending summer school in the morning.  Our program provides them with fun activities every afternoon that help to motivate them to attend their required morning classes.  We are proud of our success in making summer camp available to children who often cannot be accommodated by other programs. 

Mornings in our Summer Camps are devoted to academic subjects; the afternoons, to enrichment, outings, and recreation.  Both programs maintain a low student-to-staff ratio, run all day, and incorporate many field trips.  Our summer programs have social workers on site, in leadership roles, so that they can support students.

The Summer Spot serves 60 Frederick students all summer long.  The program meets on-site at the Frederick School.  Many staff and students from the school-year ASPIRE afterschool program continue with us in the summer.  In a neighborhood with high rates of violence, the Summer Spot is critical for keeping our students safe, supervised, and engaged.  Summer program highlights include:

The AIP Summer Program, an extension of our school year Therapeutic Afterschool Program, provides an enriching summer experience to 50 Irving Middle School students.  Most other summer programs are not equipped to accommodate the needs of children with serious emotional or behavioral disorders, so the opportunity AIP provides to our Inclusion Day Program students is very unique.  In addition, our split-day program schedule makes the AIP Summer Program one of the few camp opportunities available for students who are sent by the school district to mandatory summer school.

For four weeks, Summer Program campers spend mornings in academics and hands-on learning classes that complement their school year studies.  After lunch, students choose from a menu of enrichment activities, such as sports, arts, personal expression, character-building activities, and community involvement.  We utilize the resources of the city to extend our program options.  Typical activities might include:

  • Arts and Crafts
  • Basketball, softball
  • Biking
  • Drama
  • Peace Games
  • Computers
  • Community Service
  • Golf at Putterham Meadows Golf Course
  • Swimming at Houghton’s Pond
  • Hiking in the Blue Hills
  • Tennis in the Southwest Corridor Park
  • Outdoor Club and Community Gardening at the Boston Nature Center

The fifth week of the program, we take children on field trips all five days.  Past destinations have included:

  • Water Park
  • The Beach
  • Canoeing
