CAMP ESCAPADES offers children in our community a traditional summer camp experience that is inclusive of everyone’s needs. Our highly trained multidisciplinary camp team includes PTN occupational therapists with numerous years of camp experience who oversee programming, staff and volunteers. Camp groups are staffed with occupational, physical or speech therapists, paraprofessional educators, and one-on-one teen volunteers who are the child’s “buddy" throughout the week. Camp activities take place in a safe encouraging environment and are geared and adapted so that every camper can have fun regardless of their age or ability.
When does Camp Escapades take place?
Camp Escapades will take place in the summer of 2021.
Who is eligible for camp?
Campers must be 5-14 years of age. In addition, to make camp a fun and safe experience for all children, your child must be able to do the following without showing aggressive or unsafe behaviors:
- Participate in group activities
- Remain in a group without running away
- Attend to activities for at least 10 to 15 minutes
- Transition from one activity to the next with minimal assistance
- Display no aggressive behaviors (such as hitting, biting, scratching, etc.)
Please note that camp coordination team reserves the right to request that a family member or 1:1 assistant remain with the child if he or she is unable to meet the criteria listed above. Children with mobility challenges are welcome at camp. A 1:1 assistant or family member must accompany any camper who is in need of assistance for feeding, medication, bathroom use or mobility.
Will my child receive therapy at Camp Escapades?
Camp Escapades’ objective is for children of all abilities to enjoy a summer camp experience as opposed to meeting treatment goals. Group leaders will be present at all times to facilitate a child’s participation, modifying or adapting the activity as needed.
