An Occupational Therapy intensive Day Camp that specializes in assisting children with their sensory motor needs. Frame of Reference is based on Dr. Jean Ayers’ Sensory Integration Theory and Camp Avanti. There is a low ratio of children to adults; therefore, the children will be able to work on their own personal sensory diets. Areas of focus range from vestibular and proprioception to fine motor skills. Camp Connections is unique in that children have access to an indoor climbing wall, suspended sensory equipment, therapeutic listening (Berard AIT), Hippotherapy, Interactive Metronome, and more. Camp is a good time to start working on learning how to identify body regulation and how to modulate it effectively. Camp Connections has 2 full day (9:00-3:00) camp sessions that are 10 consecutive days to be able to incorporate Berard AIT and other intensive programs.
Camp is divided up in to groups based on categories such as children’s age, developmental challenges, and camp intensity.
Please check below to see which camp will suit your child’s needs best. If you have any questions about which camp group to enroll your child in, please do not hesitate to call.
