Happy Headquarters

Every person deserves the chance to participate in the arts.

Walk through the double doors of the Happy Headquarters at Merrimack Hall and you’ll find a vibrant, wonderful, and united community!  Here everyone is free to express themselves and embrace their individuality while growing and learning together.

Merrimack Hall is where friends celebrate each other and where there’s no such thing as normal. Normal… well, that’s just a dryer setting!

Debra Jenkins & Kids

The Happy Headquarters is a comprehensive, year-round program that serves over 500 individuals annually with the help of  over 200 trained volunteers. Our programs give people with special needs the chance to explore and express their creativity in a non-competitive setting.  The Happy Headquarters has three distinct components:

After-School Arts Education

Offered on week day afternoons from August to May each year, our visual and performing arts programming for those aged 3 or older enhance the quality of life for our participants. Curriculums, created to meet our participants at their point of need, generate priceless amounts of self-confidence and cultivate creative independence on the floor of our dance studio, stage, or visual art spaces.

Adult Day Program

Offered on week days throughout the year, Merrimack Hall is providing lasting and positive social connections to our participants, aged 18 or older, while they enjoy enriching activities including music therapy, visual and performing arts, and social interactions that foster independence and nurture creative energies.

Summer Camp

Join us during the month of June for our half-day performing arts camp for those with special needs, aged 3 or older. Energetic campers will have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of activities including music, theatre, dance, and arts & crafts. Each week of camp has a unique theme, culminating in a performance to showcase the skills learned during camp.
