Camp JUMP-IN� is an intensive two week day camp focusing on children with developmental needs in areas such a social skills, motor, adaptive and self-care skills; also, needs relating to speech, sensory processing and sensory integration. Campers� activities involve the use of suspended equipment, gross motor activities, fine motor activities, social interaction, brain gym, language, body work, therapeutic listening, and swimming.
Camp is limited to eight campers. To assure a position, a $500.00 deposit is required and is due one month before camp begins. The deposit will be applied toward the camp tuition, which is due in full two weeks prior to the beginning of camp. Camp is open to children ages 4-14.
Our program stands above other summer programs in that we focus on intensive foundation skills as opposed to �just play�. We utilize a 3 hour concentrated block to accomplish our therapy goals. Additionally, our program incorporates the active involvement of at least one parent with the purpose of training them to be able to reinforce their child�s therapy at home, further enhancing their success rate. Combining this with the training/work experience that a student volunteer receives throughout camp makes our summer program unique.
Campers new to JUMP-IN� need a screening evaluation at JUMP-IN� prior to camp. Schedule your evaluation early so you can begin you home program so your child can receive maximum benefits at camp.
