Lakeland Rehabilitation to Host Sensory Summer Camp
Apr 16, 2019
(ST. JOSEPH) – Children ages three to 12 who have a diagnosis of autism, sensory processing disorder, or cerebral palsy are invited to experience a fun and active group environment during the Spectrum Health Lakeland Sensory Camp. Led by licensed physical, speech, and occupational therapists, activities are presented in a consistent routine and include sensory motor exercises, balance and coordination, obstacle courses, socialization opportunities, and gross motor tasks, among others.
“Through our work with pediatric patients, we recognized a need in our community for children with physical or behavioral issues that may prevent them from enrolling in a traditional summer camp to still be able to experience all of the joys this environment offers,” said physical therapist, Keri Pawielski, PT, Lakeland Rehabilitation.
Sensory Camp will be held on Mondays, June 17 to August 5 at Power in Motion Gymnastics, located at 3889 South M-139 in St. Joseph. Children ages three to six will meet from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. and children ages seven to 12 will meet from 2:00 to 3:15 p.m. Cost of the camp is $120 per camper, due by the first day of camp. Sibling discounts are available. Space for the camp is limited. For more information or to register, call (269) 428-2799.
