Provide your child the opportunity to connect with nature & other children in a therapeutic way over the holiday break!
A growing body of research suggests that psychological and physical health improve for children when they spend time in nature on a regular basis. The Well Wilderness Kids Therapeutic Playgroups allow children to benefit from nature from a developmental perspective, including but not limited to gross/fine motor skills, visual processing, tactile, & social-emotional. The goal is for each child to experience movement & therapeutic play through all of the senses.
This 1-day therapeutic camp will provide your child an opportunity to interact & play in a manner that will foster development of physical, social & emotional skills in an environment that is therapeutically structured yet allows a child to naturally learn & interact within their own individual comfort level. Some of the activities will include creating art with nature, circle social time with nature stories/music, zipline/climbing/swinging, & therapeutic touch with animals.
The camp session is limited to 8 campers to allow for a small therapeutic ratio. The playgroup will be led by a pediatric Physical Therapist & Early Childhood Educator specialized in providing therapeutic intervention for children diagnosed with ADHD, autism & other sensory processing disorders.
The nature camp is open to children of all ages and abilities & will take place Mon, Jan 15th 10am-3pm.
Camp Registration fee: $85 (includes nutritious snacks for our sensory food exploration activity), PLEASE PACK YOUR CHILD A LUNCH WITH A WATER BOTTLE
*please indicate on your application if your child has any food allergies or intolerances
