Progressive Pediatric Summer Escape Camp
Progressive Pediatric – Summer Escape Camp
Summer Escape is a camp for children, and teens with special needs. We offer a fun, social setting for children of all disabilities, and our staff is well trained in providing individualized support systems. Our camp is modeled on a therapeutic approach that uses everyday opportunities to achieve skills in the natural setting.
Safety is our primary focus at all times, and to ensure your child is safe, we have key codes on all doors entering and exiting the building, and also bring all of our exciting visitors to our home site, instead of going out and about! But, this doesn’t stop us from doing all kinds of fun activities! Some of these include: Bounce houses, animal visitors, paint drumming, African tribal drumming, super-hero play with Spider Man, and so much more!
We provide Occupational, Physical, Speech, and Music Therapy onsite. Some strategies we employ within our camp structure include: sensory-based activities, social stories, social-emotional regulation, behavioral management and social-skills training within a Conscious Discipline Framework.
Daily activities include: game time, outside play, weekly water days, music therapy groups, arts & crafts, drumming, sensory/gym room time and MORE! We believe every kid deserves a summer worth remembering, and we will do anything we can to ensure your child comes home smiling, safe, and tired, every single day.
