Our Day Programs run for six weeks during the summer, four to five days during the winter, and three days during Spring Break. Students experience an array of therapies, social skills training, team building activities, vocational training, and facilitation of their independence. We serve individuals of all abilities from ages 3 to adulthood, and all rooms are staffed with certified educators, instructional assistants, and trained college staff and volunteers.
H.E.R.O.E.S. SUMMER PROGRAM Update
At this time registration is CLOSED!
Dear HEROES Families and Friends.
As you know, the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic has had an extensive impact on our world and our communities. HEROES staff and board of directors have been hard at work carefully reviewing the public health recommendations from the CDC and state of Texas. In addition, we have been monitoring timelines for reducing social distancing and increasing group gathering size.
We are using all available guidance to make the very best decisions to protect the health and safety of HEROES staff, families, and most importantly our students during these unprecedented times. With new
guidance released this week from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Texas Governor’s Office as well as thoughtful review, HEROES has made the decision to move forward with summer camp with
restrictions and strong guidelines and protocols which are attached to this letter. Health expert recommendations regarding social distancing, group sizes, and risk mitigation has played a large factor in this decision and unfortunately that will not allow us to serve some of our student population at this time Given the nature of camp and the activities our campers participate in, this is the safest decision for our campers, our staff, and the families that we serve.
We understand that this decision will impact you and your campers and we know that you count on HEROES for opportunities for your child to be supported as they develop new skills, independence and spend time
with friends in a safe environment. There is nothing that we love more than serving you through safe, fun, and life-changing programs. However, we must keep the safety of all as the primary factor in our decision
