An outdoor summer intensive program aimed to build your child’s motor coordination, self-regulation, confidence and social skills. The club will be organized and led by an occupational therapist with the assistance of occupational therapy students and volunteers. A Kiddo Active physiotherapist and speech therapist will be consulting with the club each week in order to provide additional recommendations and support.
Nature Club will offer therapeutic and playful activities to support each participant’s sensory-motor and social development through natural playful interaction with peers and the environment. Intensive therapeutic services will be offered through nature exploration, fort building, water play, loose parts play, open-ended creative activities and many opportunities for unstructured free play.
At the beginning of each week we will set therapeutic goals for each child. At the end of the second week each family will be provided with a summary of the activities that were completed, the child’s progress throughout the week, as well as ideas on how the family can use the outdoors and nature to continue providing support throughout the rest of the summer.
Who: Children ages 5 to 11 years old who could benefit from building on their motor coordination, sensory modulation, self-regulation or social skills in a supportive outdoor environment. The group will be divided into two based on participants ages.
When: 9:00-12:00pm daily for 2 week segments. It is possible to sign up for one segment or both.
Segment 1: July 5th through July 16th 2021 Segment 2: July 19th through July 30th 2021
Where: Parks and forested areas around the clinic location, allowing for a variety of adventures. You will be provided with a drop off/pick up schedule with your orientation package 2 weeks before as we await the most up to date park information from each city.
Cost: $1000 per two week segments with a receipt provided for insurance purposes or income taxes.

Preventative health measures (COVID-19):
We will be respecting the adult to child ratios outlined by the provincial government for day camps.
Families will be triaged upon arrival at the club to ensure that nobody in their household exhibits any of the following symptoms: fever, coughing, respiratory issues.
Frequent disinfecting of high-touch surfaces and items used.
Children will be matched with the same small group for the whole 2 weeks and 1m social distancing will be maintained between each group of children. 2m physical distancing will be maintained as much as possible. Should it be necessary for an adult to interact with the child with less than 2m distance for longer than 15 minutes, proper PPE (mask and a face shield/protective eyewear) will be worn by the adult.
The camp facilitators will have a COVID-19 emergency kit on hand should a staff member or participant begin to exhibit symptoms.
