Camp Splish-S.P.L.O.S.H. is a therapeutic summer camp run by speech language pathologists and occupational therapists. It is directly led by Kirsten Metzger-Gilbert, MA, CCC-SLP, Director of Building Blocks Therapy and Melissa Grant, OTR/L, Director of Fairfax FUNdamentals.
While we are a therapeutic camp, we want our kids to also enjoy their break from school and their camp experience. Therefore, we spend the half of our day outdoors involved with a variety of activities. While we have a schedule and theme for each day, there is ample time for free play and socialization. We begin with outdoor free play, where many items and activities reflecting the day’s theme are set up for kids to explore freely. A morning circle time officially starts the day and introduces the children to the schedule of activities. From circle time we move to our small group activities. This could be a sensory activity, craft or game. During this time the kids rotate between 3 stations with targeted fine motor, language, or gross motor activities. We eat snack and lunch together each day at camp. This allows for more social interactions while we relax and take a break from all the action! For our kids with feeding challenges, we have 2 opportunities per day to allow for plenty of time to address oral motor and/or sensory feeding goals.
