Comprehensive therapy that incorporates physical strategies to make speaking easier is available during your child’s camp stay – at no additional cost! Therapy sessions are led by a certified speech-language pathologist who works exclusively with young people who stutter.
If desired, your child can participate in individual and/or group therapy sessions, with peers who stutter and discuss key topics such as what effective communication looks and sounds like; goals and strategies for starting the new school year; making new friends; dealing with any anxiety and fears and more.
Like so many activities at Camp SAY, the choice to participate in speech therapy is completely up to you and your child.
We have created a broad range of exciting teams, based on camper interests.
Each team is led by a talented staff member who is specially-selected based on their unique skills in a given team area. Additionally, specialized activities staff has important certifications. For example, Outdoor Adventure Program staff has completed Wilderness Medical Associations’ (WMA) Wilderness First Responder Course (WFR), and American Red Cross (ARC) Lifeguard Training; the Horseback Staff has completed Certified Horsemanship Association course (CHA); the Nature Staff is trained in ARC First Aid and CPR; the Rock Climbing Staff has completed WMA Wilderness First Responder course, American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA) Single Pitch Instructor Course, AMGA Climbing Wall Instructor Course, and ARC Lifeguard course, and Ropes Staff has WMA Wilderness First Responder course, Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) High Ropes course, and ARC Lifeguard course; Waterfront Staff has ARC Lifeguard Training and CPR, and ARC Water Safety Instructor Course certification.
