Buddy Building Camp, Where Friendship Muscles Grow!

Dr. Lesli’s Buddy Building Summer Camp is a four-week day program helping Twice-Exceptional (2e) children and young adolescents learn social interaction and coping skills with the goal of building lasting friendships on her Southern California ranch. Campers learn social skills such as self-awareness, team-building, sportsmanship, conflict resolution, self-reflection, and cooperative play through sports, art and nature activities.  Campers spend as much time as possible outdoors exploring nature and working with the animals on Dr. Lesli’s ranch. In addition, community skills are practiced with visits to local museums, scavenger hunts, and other community-based field trips.  The camp works on a reward based system wherein the campers earn “Buddy Bucks” that can then be redeemed for prizes.  The summer camp was a great success in New York and continues to be a premier summer camp for neurodiverse children in Los Angeles, CA.
