Residential program provides summer fun for Eden students

Tucked away in the scenic mountains of North Jersey, there lies a haven for Eden students to spend their summers playing and learning.

For seven weeks this summer, students attended the residential program, Eden at Crossroads. Students were given the opportunity to participate in outdoor sports, games, and themed activities, all while learning through Applied Behavior Analysis. 

In total, roughly 42 students participated in this year’s program. Every week, students were treated to a new theme — which ranged from spirit week to movies — that helped guide the week’s activities. From swimming and kickball to arts and crafts and parachute games, there was no shortage of activities to keep the students engaged. 

The ability to participate in a residential program is invaluable for our students and their families. The participants have 24/7 access to teachers and ABA, which helps them live more independently once they return home. In addition, parents are able to enjoy vacations or time at home knowing their child is safe and being cared for. 

As students, teachers, and families prepare to head back to school tomorrow, they do so with memories of a relaxing, fun-filled summer, thanks to the Eden at Crossroads program.
