Aim: The unique nature of this camp is to target each child’s individual learning needs and goals using a combination of therapeutic approaches: Core Vocabulary, DIR/Floortime approach (D: Development, I: Individual Differences, R: Relationship Building), Principles of Motor Learning, Sensory Integration Therapy, Hippotherapy, Social Thinking, Zones of Regulation and Music & Movement.

Focus:  Activities were developed and designed to promote the development of socialization, communication, motor skills, coordination and regulation while having FUN!

The “intensive, camp model” is to provide children with frequent, quality time with their speech pathologist and occupational therapist in conjunction with other children who are learning how to develop and improve language, sensory-motor & social skills.  Camp to therapist ratios are 1:3 or 1:4 and provide more intensive services and many opportunities to use language and social skills with guided instruction and modeling  in a camp environment.

The camp is designed for children 5-10 years old who currently receive speech-language and occupational therapy services.  We specialize in working with:

Childhood Apraxia of Speech

Sensory Processing Disorder

Global Dyspraxia


Global Developmental Disabilities

The camp is designed to provide social, language, sensory-motor and educational enrichment via experiential learning on a farm, at the beach, in an outdoor classroom while also including community outings.
