Our activity camps focus on communication based activities in a fun and stimulating environment and are led by our team of specialist speech and language therapists. In recent years these have been centered around horse riding based at Summoner’s Farm and more recently at our wonderful Hillside Stables in Kent. For children who prefer indoor activities there are opportunities enjoy a range of performance media including dance, drama, film and music.
These are very much family weeks with a welcome BBQ, time to talk to other parents and siblings and a farewell celebration afternoon for all. All children and young people will come away with a report and some ideas and targets for developing their communication skills. They also come away with more confidence, new friends and some happy memories; something to talk about…
Building on our experiences of running week long activity camps for children and young people with Down syndrome for many years and of working with children and young people with a wide range of additional needs in schools and other services, we are offering activity camps for children with additional needs associated with other diagnoses.
Camps are available for children and young people over 5 years of age. Most of our holidays are not residential but families can arrange accommodation through us, at Dickley Court, which is just up the road or stay at a local hotel or B and B.
Daily camps last four and a half to five days and are charged at £650 per child.
Dates for 2016 camps are to be confirmed- contact us for details.
