A Fun Camp Experience for Tweens with Disabilities
Camp Suntastic™ is designed for children ages 9 to 13 who have disabilities. This camp provides an opportunity for children to continue learning during the summer and have a fun summer camp experience just like other kids do. If your child needs one-on-one support, your child may attend camp with an aide provided by your family or school, or a member of the Peak Potential Therapy staff. We also welcome siblings and friends to attend our community inclusion program! We believe every child with a disability can have a successful experience in Camp Suntastic™, including those with:
- Mild to Moderate Autism
- Down’s Syndrome
- Cerebral Palsy
- Traumatic Brain Injury
Children at Camp Suntastic™ will meet in the community for a fun social outing to generalize skills. Each week the children will engage in a different field trip location.
While at camp, children will be provided with numerous transactional supports to help them be successful and have a great time, such as visual schedules, social stories, alternating high and low demand, and incorporating movement. There will be a variety of activities to engage your child, including social skills, gross motor play, sensory regulation, community safety, and much more.
Space is limited to only 6 campers per day, with a minimum of 2 children to run the camp. The ratio will be 3 children with 1 speech-language therapist. An assistant will be added if there are 4 to 6 children in any camp session. If your child needs an aide, s/he may attend camp with the staff provided by the family or Peak Potential Therapy will provide one for a fee.
This camp gives your child a mini-SMILE Camp™ experience, which is perfect for families who have limited funds or want to schedule around your child’s ESY. We offer flexible registration allowing you to pick just one day for a special experience or create a unique experience for your child who does not “fit the mold” for camp. Please call us to discuss the option of having camp customized to meet your child’s unique needs.
