There are many fantastic summer camps for kids with ADHD, and they work on social skills and other strategies. My favorite is SOAR, but there are several good ones listed here:

I see this is over a month old but I want to help if I can! I have heard terrific things about Camp Kodiak.  It is in Ontario Canada but I know many people from the states go there.  Hope that helps or that you have found something already!
