SMILE Summer Camp™
Therapeutic Day Camp Directed by a Speech Language Therapist
SMILE Summer Camp™ is a therapeutic day camp led by a speech-language therapist. The camp alternates weekly with the 10-16 age group and the 6-10 age group. Campers engage in structured learning activities in addition to daily field trips to generalize skills while focusing on social skills, communication, and emotional regulation. This therapeutic program was developed specifically for children with disabilities to provide them with a fun and interactive way to develop social skills, participate in the activities that typical kids take for granted, and work on their IEP goals. We want to help your child have a better summer!
This camp can be used to supplement ESY, or in place of ESY while being funded by the school district. Every day will be fun-filled with intensive speech-language therapy focused on your child’s goals while being engaged in an outing in the community. We also welcome siblings and friends to attend! All age groups will engage in a variety of field trip activities, and some examples are:
- Therapeutic horseback riding
- Playing miniature golf
- Swimming at community pools
- Visiting the zoo
- Field trips to Cleveland Metroparks & Zoo, Hale Farm & Village, Great Lakes Science Center, Cleveland Botanical Gardens, Fun ‘n Stuff, Sky Zone, The Jump Palace, and many others
Need to work around a family vacation or summer schedule? You can easily register for one week in the session or any combination to better work with your availability. If you have any questions, please contact our staff.
