Connect with Movement and Play summer camp is designed for Northeast Ohio children with autism spectrum disorders, sensory processing issues and motor planning or movement disabilities. The curriculum facilitates fun, social learning opportunities that enhance self esteem in a structured and safe atmosphere.
Connect with Movement and Play summer camp includes structured art, craft and music activities as well as a wealth of self-directed sensory and play experiences. Each camper with autism can explore movement through activities that develop large-muscle and fine-motor skills. Afternoon activities give campers a chance to explore and choose sensory input that they enjoy.
Daily activities include both indoor and outdoor play. Campers are encouraged to practice their skills riding bikes, playing basketball or swinging on the accessible outdoor sensory playground. Inflatables will be used for outside water play or indoors for large muscle activities.
At Connect with Movement and Play summer camp, attendees get to swim in the indoor heated swimming pool. Staff encourages summer campers to feel comfortable and independent in the water or use floating devices as needed. The camper-to-staff ratio leads to a safe and secure environment. Connect with Movement and Play summer camp attendees will learn, grow, make friends and have lots of fun in this summer camp environment.
Hattie Larlham asks that children attending summer camp bring a lunch, change of clothes and swimsuit each day. Summer campers must be signed in and out by a parent, guardian or designated adult.
