Social Success Summer Camps 2017

SOCIAL SUCCESS SUMMER CAMP
SUMMER 2017
Mondays-Thursdays

Does your child struggle to read social cues, take the perspective of others, be flexible, problem-solve and/or work out conflicts? Does he or she have difficulty starting or maintaining conversation or play? Having heard many stories about how typical summer camps can be so difficult for children who have such challenges, SOCIAL SUCCESS SUMMER CAMP seeks to provide these children with a fun, positive camp experience.

We want your child to leave camp feeling successful and proud!

SOCIAL SUCCESS SUMMER CAMP is a unique, personalized camp experience led by highly trained professionals with extensive experience working with individuals with social difficulties who LOVE what we do!
We seek to meet each child at the level of their development and increase their understanding AND application of the social world. Using fun, motivating games, activities, and other tools, we will incorporate techniques and interventions designed to improve social thinking and related social skills such as the following:
• Observation and interpretation of social situations and expectations, understanding that social expectations change with age and context
• Flexible thinking & problem-solving
• Understanding and application of effective communication skills, both verbal and non-verbal
• How to work in a group
• And much more!

Activities in this camp program will include physical/movement-based activities, music, arts and crafts, the use of a variety of media, and sensory-based play/activity opportunities. Finally, Thursdays include 1.5-2 hours of SWIMMING with a certified lifeguard on duty!
PARENT COMMUNICATION:
Parents will receive:
• A daily email outlining the camp day (sent AFTER the camp day so as to accurately reflect the daily activities). All parents will receive the same email overview. Mode of daily individual communication TBD (this will not include daily forms sent home with the camper as in the past, as it has been decided that the time these take to complete detracts from valuable therapeutic interventions and teachings).
• An individual voice memo at the end of the camp week summarizing the individual child’s camp experience, including recommendations for follow-up.
