"SNAP" is the Smugglers' Notch Adaptive Program, and it provides year-round therapeutic recreation for individuals of all ages with cognitive and physical disabilities. Instructing for SNAP is structured in a different way from our other programs due to the intensive nature of instructor-to-guest relationships: usually, instructors work with only one guest instead of a large group to ensure that all of the guests's needs are met in a constructive, safe, and fun environment.
SNAP is structured into full- and half-day programs. While participation in all 5 days of a full-day camp is recommended, camps are also available to families at a per diem rate if they prefer. All SNAP programs begin promptly at 9 am, with half-day morning sessions concluding at noon and half-day afternoon sessions running from 1 until 4 pm. Additionally, SNAP offers families the option of participating in a SNAP group (all campers are enrolled in SNAP) or in an inclusion program, which places the guest and his or her instructor in a children's or adult program group.
To help facilitate smooth operation of the SNAP program, the SNAP site provides many of the same functions as other programs' pages, along with some additional resources. Visit the links on the left to explore the tools and information available to help you succeed as a SNAP Instructor. If you have any questions about SNAP, any of the resources available on this site, or are interested in working as a SNAP Instructor, please contact the Program Director, Shawna Fatigate, at extension 8502 (802.644.8502) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
