Lead teachers and Co-founders of the summer program, Adventure Camp, are Sylwia Mazur Johnson and Zoe Leverson. Both are experienced special educators who have worked in the Seattle School District and University of Washington for many years.
We started this camp to give kids with social needs the opportunity to expand their social experiences in a fun and interactive camp, while using their interests and incorporating science into summer learning.
