Summer Camp for Kids

Summer Camp for kids with special needs--Summer 2015!

Registration for Summer Camp 2015 has ended. Please check back here next Spring for Summer 2016 registration! 

What camp is all about:

The University of Puget Sound's Pediatric Summer Camp is committed to each child's personal growth and development, as well as the need to be a child first and experience the fun of typical summer camp activities. These activities are geared toward and adapted to each child, so that every camper can participate regardless of his or her age or physical ability. Each camper will be paired with a volunteer who is a student of physical therapy or occupation therapy.  This personal attention ensures each camper’s ability to participate successfully in summer camp activities.  The program is run under the supervision of licensed pediatric therapists.

Summer Camp 2014: Huge Success!

The University of Puget Sound’s annual Pediatric Summer Camp was filled to capacity each of its first two years of operation with great fun had by all!  Some of our activities included visits from various community members such as our local fire department, local organizations that brought therapy animals for the children to interact and learn about, art projects, music and theater exposure, and all around fun! Take a look above at some of the photographs from camp. Hopefully the photographs and children will inspire you to register your child for this year’s Pediatric Summer Camp!

This year camp will run July 13 – 17, 2015 July 20 – 24, 2015 Monday through Friday, a one-week session per child. Camp will run between the hours of 9 am and 12 noon.  A light snack will be provided.
