Summer camp for kids with special needs
LIFT is accepting enrollees. It's a summer program for children ages 5-10 with special needs such as sensory processing disorders, Asperger's, OCD, ODD, pediatric bipolar disorder and ADD/ADHD.
The camp is drop in but registration is required prior to the first day a child attends. The camp runs from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday, June 28 to Aug. 11. The recommended donation is $3.50/hour.
Children will participate in activities that will work on sensory processing, fine and gross motor coordination as well as social and life skills. Additional classes include art, theatre, music, math, reading and writing. Camp takes place at the East Pembroke Grange Hall.
There will be an open house from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Friday, June 10. This is designed for children to attend with a parent/guardian. During the open house, children will participate in activities designed to strengthen their sensory processing skills, social and life skills as well as fine and gross motor coordination.
