Come and join the summer fun as TCTCI brings back “Camp Wahoo Summer Day Camp”.
Camp Wahoo is a summer day camp designed for children diagnosed with Autism and Sensory Processing. The goal of Camp Wahoo is to provide group-based summer fun activities in a day camp atmosphere to target motor planning, social skills, fine motor, recreation/leisure, and sensory motor skill areas. Campers will be placed in groups of four or five children and the camp groups will be facilitated by an occupational therapist and 1-2 medical or college student aides. Campers will enjoy the opportunity to make friends and gain valuable skills while having fun participating in summer-based camp activities that include motor obstacle courses, social games, learning new leisure skills, sensory fun, and water play. The campers will have a final “Camp Awards Day” on Friday, June 18th in which parents will be able to attend. Home-based program activities will be provided for parents that will include some of the activities campers learned at Camp Wahoo that can be facilitated as a home-based program.
Special Note: Camp Wahoo is under consideration for a grant from Autism Speaks. We are waiting for this determination before we can begin to take camp applications. If you are interested please call TCTCI and ask to be added to the sign-up wait list.
