Activities and Events

Lara's House is the site of several Activity, Day Camp and Life Skills Programs for individuals with special needs. These special day, evening and weekend camps and workshops, named the 4 L's Activity Program (for life, learning, laughter and love), are available to persons with special needs age 10 and up. They offer a fun, stimulating and educational place to learn and grow, and give parents and families a needed break from caregiving.


All events, activities and programs are created and staffed by Beacon Family Services, a company with a mission to provide services and support to persons with special needs, their families, caregivers and community. Program leaders and support staff are carefully chosen, and are either certified special education teachers or school district educational assistants, or trained and licensed care providers.


Programs include a Day Program for ages 21+, Pizza and Movie nights, Saturday Creativity/Arts Camp, BBQ and music night, Spa Night, holiday day camps, and special holiday celebrations. Space is limited to 6-8 participants per activity so all can participate at their own level and receive individual care and attention. Contact us for information about current program and calendar.
