Giant Step considers the development of positive social skills to be one of its most important goals. As such, structured and unstructured opportunities for social growth are fostered seven days a week.
Social Options: Students are provided with frequent structured events that are well attended. Options include: social cooking, movie nights, exercise opportunities at the local Y, an art club, and trips every Friday night, Saturday and Sunday.
Weekend Events: These include outings to movie theaters, malls, restaurants, sporting events, amusement parks, museums, and larger excursions to New York City for Broadway shows, and other Big Apple attractions.
Trips: In the past, we have held organized and supervised trips to San Diego, the Carribean, Arizona and Nevada, Disney World, Williamsburg Virginia, Pennsylvania Dutch Country, Mystic Seaport and Frost Valley Environmental Center in the Catskill mountains. These trips range from two to eight nights.
