June 22 – July 3

Total of 1.5 hours of camp each day, focusing on the Zones of Regulation and social skills, with movement breaks as needed.

June 22-26

Our Zones Camp helps children become more aware of their emotions and impulses by utilizing the Zones of Regulation curriculum. The camp focuses on improving their ability to problem solve conflicts more independently, practicing reading facial expressions, and building vocabulary around emotional regulation. Your child will enjoy this highly active and engaging camp!

Ages: 4 – 10 years old

Social skills may not come easily for some children. During Social Skills Camp, children learn pragmatic skills using the We Thinkers! Curriculum (ages 4-6) and the Superflex Curriculum (ages 7-10). Activities focus on body awareness related to social interactions, turn taking, sharing, understanding someone else’s perspective, and flexible thinking through organized lessons and games. Social Skills camp is a great way for children to learn the foundational skills of social interactions to then enjoy participating in social activities with peers.

Eyas Landing’s Summer Camps
July 6 – September 4

Camp pods limited to 10 children with designated therapists and camp staff assigned to each pod.

July 6-10; July 13-17

Does your child love getting messy? Or is your child apprehensive about touching unknown textures? Our Sensory Explorers participate in activities that explore their sensory systems: touching textures, dancing and obstacle courses for moving their bodies, and choosing music to fit their body’s needs. Activities are both structured and unstructured to meet each child’s needs, with a primary focus of play-based learning.

Ages: 4 – 10 years old

Bike riding can be challenging—it takes coordination in the arms and legs, and overall body strength. Bike Riding Camp sets children up for success by using preparatory activities that promote coordination and strength related to bike riding as well as bike modifications. Children will have the opportunity to use a variety of bikes and other wheeled equipment, including tricycles, two-wheelers with and without training wheels, and the Strider bike. By using different bikes, children can better understand how to navigate wheels and become more successful with bike riding.

Ages: 4 – 10 years old

Aug 3-7

The Sports camp is a great way for kids to explore a variety of sports with modifications and supports. Sports include soccer, T-ball, kickball, and basketball. Children first learn how to play the game through stories and visual diagrams. Then, children learn the basics of each sport through games, and playing the sport. The focus of play is team work, gross motor skills, visual motor coordination, and waiting/turn-taking.

Ages: 4 – 10 years old

At Let’s Write Camp, children prepare their bodies and hands for writing by participating in core and hand strengthening activities that translate to success at the tabletop. Children learn how to correctly form letters using varying modalities (e.g. Play-doh, sand, wooden sticks, and pencil and paper), how to hold a pencil, and writing within and on lines. By the end of Let’s Write camp, children feel more confident in their abilities to write at home and at school.

Ages: 4 – 10 years old

Aug 24-28; Aug 31-Sept 4

Summer is a time for fun, and as summer winds down, re-focusing on school is helpful for many of our kids. School Readiness Camp combines Social Skills Camp with Let’s Write camp, where children prepare for school to start by increasing their attention during school-focused tasks and also continuing to expand their social skills in a group setting. With this continuity between camp and school, campers will transition back into school with increased success.

Ages: 4 – 10 years old

Individual Intensive Therapy Burst Program

Available All Weeks. 5 hours individually per day in clinic for those who qualify.

Does your child have a specific skill that they need help with this summer? Eyas Landing’s Individual Intensive Therapy Burst Programs are ideal for 1-4 weeks periods where very specific skills are addressed in a burst of therapy. Our individual programs allow your child to address visual motor difficulties, like letter reversals or handwriting legibility; gross motor difficulties, like bike riding or sports-specific techniques; or speech concerns, such as articulation and fluency drills. Our specialized therapy team would develop a program around your family’s summer schedule to provide daily OT, ST, PT, and/or Social Work services to address your child’s needs. Through this intensive, individualized program, your child can rise to success and gain skills to prepare them for the upcoming school year.

Ages: 4 – 10 years old
