The Hampden Youth Campus day treatment programs provides comprehensive educational and therapeutic services that address issues faced by elementary, middle, and high school students and their families. We serve Aurora, the Denver metro area and eastern Colorado with the goal of helping students learn life-long skills to support them returning to their home schools.

We focus on:

  • Literacy
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Career Exploration
  • Social and emotional learning and activities

Our Colorado Department of Education-approved classes are taught by highly qualified special education teachers in collaboration with the student’s home school district. Our programs runs on a traditional calendar and the typical length of stay is one year. We also offer a 6-week summer program that helps students refine skills learned in the school year.

We partner with New York University’s Child Study Center to utilize Trauma Systems Therapy. Students participate in weekly individual and group therapy, as well as weekly family therapy. We work to establish healthy skill development in the areas of Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills, and Responsible Decision Making. Our services can include medication management. The cost of a student’s program may be covered by certain public programs, insurance or self-pay.
