Ryan Wexelblatt, LCSW
Trip Camp Founder & Director
I’m glad you’re interested in learning more about Trip Camp. My name is Ryan, I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified School Social Worker, Certified ADHD Professional, Creator of the ADHD Dude YouTube channel and Director of ADHD Dude and Trip Camp. (My most important job is being a Dad.)
I began my summer camp career at age 3 and have spent the majority of my life working at, creating and directing various summer programs. My initial motivation for learning all I could about executive functioning and social skills stemmed from my son who has his share of learning, social and emotional regulation challenges.
Diving head first into this field led to me creating the only school year programs and summer camp that solely serves the ADHD population.
I started Trip Camp because the kids I was working with in my private practice did not have a summer camp option that met their needs. Their choices were to either attend mainstream camps where they would not learn important skills or attend “social skills camps” where they were grouped with kids who had much more significant challenges.
I am one of the few individuals in the Philadelphia area and South Jersey to have received a Social Thinking Clinical Training Level 1 Certificate of Completion. Additionally, I completed extensive training in executive functioning support strategies as well as Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
I have presented at national and regional conferences including multiple times at the International Conference on ADHD, the Social Thinking Global Providers Conference, and many regional conferences.
I am originally from Lower Merion, Pennsylvania and attended Temple University for my undergraduate degree and Bryn Mawr College School of Social Work for graduate school. Please feel free to contact me to discuss how Summer Trip Camp can benefit your son and please feel free to join the ADHD Dude community on social media.
