Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
STAR (Sensory Therapies And Research) Center, the premier treatment center for children with sensory challenges, is announcing its Sensational Kids Kamp program for 2013. The summer camp is open to children ages 4–10 and is focused on helping children improve socialization with their peers, and learn to self-regulate sensory information through building relationships and fun activities.
The camps are designed for children that have or likely have Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), ADHD or autism. Siblings and friends that do not have SPD or other conditions are also welcome and can learn social skills while having fun at the camps. The camps are held at STAR Center’s Greenwood Village facility, which includes a sensory gym and a newly built sensory playground. Staff to camper ratio is one to three and partners one occupational therapist with two to three campers. Each camp is limited to nine campers.
The STAR Center Sensational Kids Kamp program will be half-day camps held weekly from July 8 through August 2, 2013. Each camp has a special theme around which activities are planned including Animal Adventures, Movin’ and Groovin’, Fairy Tales & Super Heroes, Ooey Gooey, Sib Shop, and All Ball. Each day of camp will include relationship building through a movement activity and a craft activity. One young man who attended camp last year said it was the “Best experience of my life.” Another said, “I want to do camp twice a day.”
