Creative Arts Summer Camp
For Youth with Special Needs
This youth summer camp is designed and directed by highly trained board certified music therapists.
Our mission is to enhance the lives of the youth in our community through group and individual creative arts interventions by increasing collaboration and relationships, improving overall health and wellness, encouraging expression and communication, and assisting in leisure skill development and mindfulness.
The camp includes three intervention areas!
Music interventions are designed around the session theme. Interventions may include music making, songwriting, and many others.
Art interventions will also support the session theme and may include clay, paint, collage-making, and more. All material will be adapted for each camper's needs.
Movement interventions will vary greatly depending on the needs of the campers. Interventions will include both gross and fine motor movements and adaptations.
Each week will have a different theme!
Week 4 - Emotions
Week 5 - Communication
Week 6 - Leisure Skills
Week 1 - Friendship
Week 2 - Health & Wellness
Week 3 - Mindfulness
