Is Social Adventures camp for your child?
Would your child benefit from developing social, behavior and emotional-regulation skills?
Do you want your child to learn more social emotional skills from highly trained professionals?
Do you understand the value and importance of social skills for your child?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then Socially Adventures camp is likely a good match for your child. Social Adventure camp is an therapeutic outdoor/indoor summer camp led by a licensed Speech Language Pathologist and Social Learning Specialist for children ages 6 - 11 years old.
Social Adventures is a highly individualized group-based social skills camp that will be provided in collaboration with Integrative Therapy Connections and other professionals to include occupational therapy, art therapy, mindful movement, resiliency and yoga. For more information on the professionals involved in the camps please scroll to the bottom of the page to read their biographies.
Our mission is to provide a sanctuary for children who have difficulty in school, traditional camps or anywhere in the social world and those that need extra help and support making friends or maintaining friendships. We provide a therapeutic and empowering camp experience for your child.
What makes us different?
At Social Adventures camp, while your child is playing and working in a group with a group of new friends, he/she is also being provided support and learning skills related to:
Responsible decision making
Skills related to working in a group
Improve cognitive flexibility
Boost self esteem
Each camp only has 8 spots available per week. This allows us to individualize the camp experience for each camper and keep the camp environment small in order to maximize the success of each camper.
This camp is not for children who have limited language or cognitive skills or who have dangerous or extremely defiant behaviors. If this is the case, we can help you find the right programs for your child.
