He benefits greatly from structure and routine, but is also often trying to engage in the role of caretaker for his siblings.

His team is exploring ways to maintain this through his school breaks and is seeking to supply him with an opportunity for adventure and play. Specifically a cultural arts camp in which he will be able to embark on the ultimate quest where he will be able to run, play and explore in the role of a fantasy hero he creates! Assistance in this area will increase his access to routine, structure, and healthy activities and afford him some space from his younger siblings during school break.
