Rising 2nd and 3rd graders
S.P.O.T.S. Brooklyn, 44 Court Street, Suite 314
*Children will have daily opportunities to play outside and explore the Brooklyn community.
Session 1: June 29, 2020 – July 24, 2020
Session 2: July 27, 2020- August 21, 2020
*Campers must be scheduled for at least one 4-week session. Campers may be signed up for both sessions as daily activities are subject to change due to collaborative, team approach.
The S.P.O.T.S. camp experience will focus on building functional skills to empower children to feel confident and successful in everyday life. Through activities we will facilitate each child’s capacity to improve emotional regulation, executive functioning and social skill building. We will use a collaborative approach inviting the children to guide in the activity selection and design. The children will be engaged in activities that will require “thinking”, “planning” and “doing” as a group. Camp therapists are experts in guiding this kind of process collaboration. Through our camp design and activities, the children will practice persistence and growing independence in problem solving. Camp therapists and counselors will foster each child’s development of determination, frustration management, and successful accomplishment of goals. Examples of activities may include planning a field trip, creating a recipe and shopping for ingredients, planning and building a game, and deconstruction and reconstruction of everyday objects. Participating in unstructured play to promote social confidence will also be a valued and integral part of the camp program. We want each camper to feel a sense of ownership and joy with the camp.
S.P.O.T.S. staff member, Michele Rostowsky OTR/L, will run this camp.
