In this half day summer camp your child will be guided in a safe, structured and sensory rich environment through mindfulness, yoga and a variety of sensory experiences. Each day of the week your child will be welcomed with an opportunity to socialize with peers during unstructured free play, followed by a morning meeting. Our morning meeting will incorporate Yoga, breath work and provide presets for the sensory experience of the day. Each day will focus on enhancing your child’s awareness of a new sense through hands on activities indoors and outdoors through the guidance of two occupational therapists. Each day will conclude with a closing circle and light snack (brought from home).

Sensory play is a vital component to growing, learning and developing healthy sensory integration. Sensory play stimulates a child's senses. It can be messy, clean, scented, unscented, dry, wet, warm, cold, hot, fun or uncomfortable. It can include touch, taste, smell, sight, hearing and movement. Sensory play develops cognition, speech, social/emotional and physical development.
