Extended School Year (ESY)
Camp Pegasus often provides Extended School Year social skills services. If your child has an IEP with the school district, you can request that Camp Pegasus be your ESY provider. This is negotiated by your school district independent of Camp Pegasus.

ESY (Extended School year) services
NOTE TO PARENTS:
Camp Pegasus provides Extended School Year (ESY) social skills services to many area school districts. These ESY services are negotiated between the public school district and the camper's family, separate from Camp Pegasus and our application process. Please check with your school district to see if your camper qualifies for ESY services. If your camper does qualify for ESY, the camper still needs to go through the Camp Pegasus application process. Parents and/or school district personnel can contact the Camp Director, Aviva Moore, for more information.
NOTE TO SCHOOL DISTRICTS:
School districts follow a shortened application process to ensure that each camper will benefit from our program. Please be aware that we require 2 weeks to review the camper's application before his/her first day of camp. This is essential to ensure that the camper and program will be a good fit as well as ensuring sufficient space for all campers.
3-step ESY Application Process
STEP 1: THE APPLICATION PROCESS
Confirm with your district that your child is eligible for ESY services.
Camp Pegasus evaluates whether the program is the right fit for your child.
For the application, necessary materials include:
- Recent Evaluation
This can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 610-649-0503 or mailed to: 600 Haverford Rd. Suite G-101, Haverford, PA 19041.
STEP 2: THE EVALUATION PROCESS
Reviewing materials submitted
We will quickly review the materials to decide if Camp Pegasus would benefit your student.
Camp Pegasus must ensure that our groups are successful for the entire group as well as your child individually. Sometimes, a child's developmental needs or coping difficulties greatly impact the group’s functioning. In those cases, we might observe behaviors that are disruptive, oppositional, tantrum, or hurtful. Staff are skilled and diligent in our attempts to resolve these conflicts. At times, the resolution for the child cannot be reached in the context of the group setting and we may need to discontinue your child’s attendance in the group. In that situation, we will try to offer alternative interventions that might be of more benefit to your child.
