Summer Therapy Camp with a Zoo Theme

Therapy Camp 2015

Register for Therapy Camp!

Come join us for a fun summer therapy camp to work on social skills as well as OT and language needs. Summer camp will be conducted by our certified OT and SLP and participants will learn and play as we transform our OT room into a “zoo”. We will practice motor movements as we become the animals of the jungle. We will work on taking turns and following directions in zoo related activities as well as provide proprioceptive and vestibular needs.

Why do Camp?
Camp is a wonderful way to increase peer interaction while receiving extra therapy time during the summer. Conducted in a very fun setting, camp gives an opportunity to work on social, gross and fine motor skills in a themed environment.

When will it be?
Camp will run in 2 hour blocks for 8 sessions and sessions will be held once a week for 8 Consecutive weeks. Once we have 3-6 participants per group, we will set the date for sometime in June/July/August that will best accommodate participant schedules.
