Registrations Now Being Accepted for Third Annual Therapy Day Camp

Posted: 7/1/2013

Brookings Health System’s rehabilitation services department is now accepting registrations for the third annual therapy day camp, scheduled to run July 29 through August 15.

Cost is $200 and the camp is limited to eight children. Camp is held Monday, Tuesday and Thursday during the three week period from 9 to 11 a.m.

The theme-based, communication enriched camp will allow participating children to have fun while working on improving their target need areas, including speech and language skills, fine motor and sensory processing skills.

The camp is structured to assist children ages four to eight develop their communication and occupation-based skills with evidenced-based therapy provided by a SLP and an OTA.

The camp allows children who do not receive therapy at school to learn habits they can take back to the classroom. For children who do receive therapy at school, the camp allows them to maintain their skills over the summer break and serve as a jump-start to the school year.

The camp atmosphere also allows children to work on their specific improvement areas in a group setting as well as individual, one-on-one needs. In addition, parents will be given tips for helping their children to follow through and continue their progress at home.

To register your child for therapy day camp, please call the rehabilitation services department at (605) 696-8821.
