The C.A.M.P. Program


What is the Speech Language Pathology in Motion C.A.M.P. Program?

Communicate, Articulate, Make Friends and Play at the Speech Language Pathology in Motion C.A.M.P. Program, a week long speech and language enrichment program.  The goal of the program is to help children practice critical speech and language skills with peers, while also participating in a positive summer experience.  

The C.A.M.P. Program is made to feel like summer camp, however there is a strong focus on speech and language skill development.  Three individualized speech or language goals are selected for each participant, based on their needs.  The goals are targeted throughout the week, providing hundreds of opportunities for practice across activities. There is a strong focus on peer interactions and pragmatic language skills built into the program. 

Activities include equine movement, creative arts, group lunch/playground, language games, and swimming.  Each activity is led by a licensed speech language pathologist (SLP).  The program is offered on the property of Pal-O-Mine Equestrian, a 13 acre facility in Islandia, NY.

The program offers a high level of support.  Each child is provided with a 1:1 aide and 2 group leaders.  


Future SLPs

Our group leaders 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 future speech language pathologists to gain hands on experience with children with speech and language difficulties and learn from fully licensed SLPs. 

The interns are provided with information regarding communication differences, strategies for supporting speech and language, information on taking data and motoring progress on goals, the use of visual supports and schedules, and how to modify activities to help the children succeed. The interns support the SLPs as they run activities throughout the week and are given ample opportunities to gain hands on experience as they prepare for their future careers.

Parent Testimonials:

  • "This experience is exactly what "J's" dad and I envision for a summer program for him.  Being outside, being with peers, being with horses, being in the water...all while being surrounded by speech students and therapists who can carryover skill practice and just give him a fun experience in the sun..amazing!  For my "non-verbal, non-ambulatory boy" to have a typical "camp week" is just incredible.  Thank you!"

  • "The C.A.M.P. Program for my son has been truly a wonderful and positive  experience.  "A" has been more engaged, initiating play with his sister and more talkative with his family.  "A" has gained confidence and that has given him the ability to feel secure communicating and initiating at home.  We are very pleased with his progress.  The C.A.M.P. Program was  the exact program I was looking for my son, and I would highly recommend it.  I love how they focus on the kids abilities and their successes in a positive way.  It gives them an all-around experience in arts, sports, horseback riding, and games to experience with one another and a proper support system."

  • "M" had such a wonderful time at the C.A.M.P. Program!  We loved the information sheets that were sent home each day.  We are so happy that  "M" was able to attend the program during her time off from school, when  she would most likely regress.  I think her teachers will be pleasantly surprised when she goes back to school in September.  Fabulous job  everyone!!" 

  • In  just a week, "C" is making more sounds and trying to speak more.  She seemed very happy when I picked her up each day, and she was excited to go each morning!"
