Camp Fly High - Summer Camp

In 2012, we introduced an 8-week summer camp called “Camp Fly High,” open to Madonna Learning Center students and other area students with disabilities. The camp is able to serve 25 campers per week (up to 100 different children and young adults) over the course of the summer.

This year, we will be having a 4-week summer camp at our newly renovated campus!

Each day, campers are placed with a small group of peers, along with a head counselor and several volunteers. The top priority is to ensure all campers are fully engaged in all activities throughout the day. Each day, campers are able to enjoy activities such as:

• arts & crafts

• sports & games

• cooking classes

• therapeutic recreation

• music & movement

• yoga

Students are also transported to a community partner organization, the Memphis Jewish Community Center, where they have swim time. We are fortunate to have many members of the community volunteer their time over the summer!

Camp Fly High 2017 will be held at Madonna Learning Center’s newly renovated campus at 7007 Poplar Ave. in Germantown, TN. Camp will be held every day from 9am to 3pm during the following weeks of the summer:

June 12 - 16

June 19 – 23

July 10 – 14

July 17 – 21

Each week will have a theme (TBD). We encourage everyone to dress up each day in their best themed attire!

Priority enrollment for Madonna Learning Center students will open on Tuesday, March 7th, 2017. Open enrollment for all other students in the community will be begin Friday, April 7th, 2017.

Below, you will find the staff and volunteer applications. To apply, you must be 16 years of age for either staff or volunteer positions. We are opening the staff positions to Head Counselors and Activity Staff. We will also be offering positions for Peer Counselors this year! Any camper over the age of 22 that would like to be a counselor this year can fill out a Volunteer Application.
