There are thousands of children/youth who have had a treatment team support them at school throughout the school year. As the school year ends, these children will have no continuity in their treatment, progress may be stalled and September will be the time to start all over again. Why should this be? We would love to see these children/youth with physical, cognitive and psycho-social challenges attend an engaging summer camp where this need is addressed.
Our services are delivered by an occupational therapist, we work with any other professionals that are part of each child’s/youth’s treatment team. The idea is to continue to encourage each child to meet treatment goals and to continue to develop by using a fun and engaging sport such as kayaking and paddle boarding. Some of the examples of the most common diagnosis we work with are: Developmental Coordination Disorder, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Learning Disabilities, Down Syndrome, Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, Muscular Dystrophy, etc.
What is the cost? average is $50 per session but we would love to have bursaries available for 100 children/youth because finances SHOULD NOT be a determinant of health outcomes.
