Camps

Kirkland Casey’s Club Presents:

Summer Camp 2019

The Perfect Ten: Making Friends Can Be As Easy As 1, 2, 3!

Camp Overview for Parents and Professionals

Each day your child will be asked to participate in activities including brainstorming, role playing, dancing, playing games, conversing, doing art, problem solving, and more. There are two skills per day. As your child participates in the activities, he/she will earn a bead that represents completion. At the end of the week your child should have 10 beads and will earn a certificate of completion.

Between the first and second skill, the kids will have a break we call Snack and Chat. We provide snack. You can contribute to the Casey’s Camp by reviewing the skills we learn each day. We encourage you to play games with your child and ask him/her to teach you what he/she learned in Casey’s Camp. Finally, give your child positive feedback on the skills he/she demonstrates as you observe the behaviors.
