What is Adventure Camp?

Adventure Camp is an in-vivo, in-situ exposure therapy program designed to simulate the classroom environment. In the simulated classroom, your child has the opportunity to practice his/her communication goals. Each child is assigned to a counselor (1:1 ratio) and the counselor applies evidence-based therapeutic strategies to reduce anxiety and increase verbal communication. For younger children, the simulation includes morning circle time, free play, snack, and typical structured and non-structured activities experienced in the early childhood classrooms. For older children, the simulation includes morning assembly, non-structured and structured group work, structured class activity, and therapeutic role plays to practice classroom presentation as well as social interaction. Both age groups experience lunch, recess, in-classroom visitors, field trips, and bus rides. All counselors have received training under the direct supervision of SM specialist Dr. Carmen Lynas.
