Each summer, Chesapeake Health Care holds a 10-week program that offers innovative therapy and adventure for at-risk youth ages 6-18 years old. The program is staffed by Chesapeake Health Care's licensed therapeutic experts and clinical support staff who truly care about the safety and well-being of the children. By combining recreational activities, therapeutic sessions, and group treatment, the program helps underprivileged children develop healthy relationships, and improve emotional, behavioral, and social functioning.

This year, Chesapeake Health Care has secured space at the Crown Sports Center where they will offer the children a variety of sports and entertainment activities in addition to the therapeutic sessions. Because CHC provides transportation, breakfast, and lunch for the children, as well as staffing at a ratio of 1 therapist for every 6 children, the cost for this summer program can well exceed $3,000 per child. Despite this cost, most families pay little to no registration fee to attend. With funds raised from its golf tournament, CHC aims to expand the summer program so that more children can get the help needed to become healthy, functioning members of our communities.
