Hello! It has been a while since I’ve posted because I’ve been busy running our ever-popular summer camp! We had 17 wonderful campers join us for 2 weeks of action-packed adventure. Each day was based around a different theme, and daily activities targeted:
- Working Memory
- Fine Motor Skills
- Gross Motor Skills
- Problem Solving
- Group Work
- Social Language
We also provided our campers with daily specials including yoga, dance, music, art and community guests-We hosted firefighter, an EMT and a team of therapy dogs!
Camp SuperNOVA was led by an SLP and an OT, and staffed by a talented and dedicated team of 4 graduate students who are all studying SLP, OT or special education. We also had an undergraduate level intern and a high school student volunteer to help us keep the day running smoothly. This provided our campers with a really small ratio, and allowed us to give lots of individualized support! Here are some highlights from each day:
Outer Space Day Nature Day Wacky Wednesday
Superhero Day Animal Day
Construction Day Olympics Day Wacky Wednesday
Career Day Beach Party
This amazing group of kiddos conquered many challenges, and it was so fun to see them form friendships along the way. We are so proud of everyone!
