A Fun Camp Experience for Children with Disabilities
Camp Suntastic™ is designed for children ages 6 and up 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. Activities to be determined for specific dates but will include Twinsburg Waterpark, Cleveland Zoo, Fun’n Stuff, Zip City, Nature Center in Brecksville, Akron Children’s Museum and more.
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, he or she 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.
