Camp Kid Power integrates individual functional goals determined by each camper and family into the daily camp schedule. Each day children participate in individually tailored bimanual activities, dressing activities, prepare simple meals and engage in simple self-care tasks. The bimanual activities are structured to meet each camper at their level and build upon skill and success. Caregiver training sessions are held each day to introduce and review foundational concepts of hemiplegia as well as answer parent questions. Prior to camp parents and their children carry out a home program that includes use of a constraint to improve utilization of their affected hand.
Providing an Intensive, Yet Fun, Camp Experience
Camp Kid Poweris an intensive summer therapy camp for children with hemiplegia ages 5 to 16 years old. Occupational and physical therapists combine principles of modified constraint induced movement therapy, bimanual intensive training, and caregiver education into a fun and playful group environment.
