Camp Holiday is a day camp for campers with Down syndrome, ages 5-21, in the Greater Charlotte area. Camp activities are based on weekly themes and include arts & crafts, water play, science experiments, literacy, and so much more! In addition, participating campers enjoy weekly yoga, drama, music, Zumba, Spanish lessons, and movement class facilitated by trained professionals. Each group of campers is supported by a certified teacher and 1-2 camp counselors- offering a 3:1 counselor-to-camper ratio. Campers ages 14-21 will participate in activities that promote independence and vocational readiness as a part of their camp experience each day. These campers will help prepare daily snacks, assist with collecting & distributing materials and supplies to classrooms (which will be monitored closely to promote camper health safety), participate as role models for younger camper group activities, engage in lessons that promote communication, problem solving, self- advocacy and more. Younger campers will practice vital social and communication skills through exploratory hands-on activities as well as physical activities to promote health & growth. Participants attend camp Monday-Friday, and can chose to participate from 9am-2pm OR 9am-4pm when you register.
Session 1 of Camp Holiday will take place June 20 – July 1, M-F, at Sardis Presbyterian Church.
Cost: $500/session (9am-2pm) OR $700/session (9am-4pm)
