ATRC helps children learn about each other

While most ATRC programs focus on people with physical, cognitive and/or emotional challenges, summer programs are open to a broader clientele. We believe that children should learn to value everyone regardless of their ability.



Spring and fall sessions last 8 weeks.

Fees charged are for the 8-week session, not per class. Currently the cost for a session is $200.

One week of make-up lesson times are set at the end of each session. Only 1 make-up lesson is offered per rider for each session. If the rider misses more than 1 class in a session the remaining classes will not be made up.

Yearly paperwork and fees are due 2 weeks before the beginning of the session.

Scholarship applications are due by February 15 for Spring session and August 1 for Fall session.
