The C.A.M.P. Program is a week long speech and language enrichment program with a "camp like" feel. In this program, children are encouraged to Communicate, Articulate, Make Friends and Play through interactions with animals and a number of exciting activities with peers including horseback riding, swimming, arts & crafts, language games, sensory play, playground and group lunch. Each activity is led by a licensed speech language pathologist. Goals are selected for each child, and these goals are targeted throughout each activity, all week long. In addition general goals such as socialization, eye contact and attention are targeted for all participants. Targeting speech and language skills in this setting makes learning fun. Participants develop critical speech and language skills, while also having a positive summer experience.
We offer a highly supported week. Each child is provided with a 1:1 aide and 2 group leaders.
The program is unique in that it also serves as a learning experience for future speech language pathologists. Our group leaders, group supports and 1:1 aides are currently studying speech language pathology. We are so excited to have future speech language pathologists as part of this program, as this not only gives our participants the opportunity to work with these skilled individuals, but also allows the future speech language pathologists to gain hands on experience with children with speech and language difficulties and learn from fully licensed SLPs.
