Summer Social Skills Camp is off to a great start!

Our low-ratio summer camp experience provides the perfect place to develop friendship and social skills. Our staff are university graduates, and then some, with a passion for working with families to create an ideal learning environment for all of our campers. Trained in principle of Applied Behaviour Analysis, our approach is scientifically validated.

We have a private playground, an expansive and secure site, and tons of equipment that is sure to evoke fun! Targeting one social skill each week, we all work towards group goals while simultaneously working towards individual goals developed by camp directors Lindsay and Alley. This week, our group goal is Saying hello! Every morning we say hello during morning circle, sing greeting songs and discuss the daily events; with a little less structure than school, circle time is an opportunity to exercise choice in addition to following instructions in a group. All of our activities are designed as such, satisfying many goals at once.

With campers ages 3+ many of our little ones have never been dropped off before; our low ratio and attention to detail ensures that first-timers are provided with as much, or as little, assistance as required for a smooth transition. We have all kinds of things planned for summer, including increasing communication skills, developing social skills and encouraging team work. With weekly outings to a nearby sensory park, adventures into the community (with 1:1 support as needed) and daily in-center extravaganzas like a bouncy castle, tug of war, 360 teeter totter, mini golf and a brand new sensory experience room. We are looking forward to ensuring your child has the routine and consistency he or she needs over the summer, while still remembering that summer is a time for fun, outdoor adventures and water play!

There are a few spots open for July, and several open for August. Call us today to book a tour of the center, and see us in action! Looking forward to hearing from you! www.MagnificentMinds.ca
