Camps for Sensory Processing Disorders and Autism

Camp Big Tree

Modeled after our Children’s Hospital Program, “Camp Little Tree”, this course is designed for boys and girls, ages 12- 16, with sensory integration disorders, learning and/or attention deficits. The course is designed to set a quick pace for activities and fun. This requires that all participants be fully independent with self-care tasks. Through outdoor activities and established experiential education models, participants will have the opportunity to develop social skills, teamwork traits and leadership qualities that will transfer into everyday life. This is a mobile course based out of Buena Vista, CO.  Students will be involved in cooking, cleaning and gear preparation during the course. However, the emphasis will be on having fun in a structured setting. Activities will include rock climbing, river rafting and camping. See dates for this year’s Camp Big Tree.

Camp Little Tree

Camp Little Tree, a program of Childrens Hospital and hosted by BOEC, is a special camp for children 8 to 12 years of age with sensory integration (SI) impairments, as well as learning and/or attention deficits. Children who experience sensory integration dysfunction (SID) have many challenges that are hidden. Outwardly they may appear like other children, but their behavior issues set them apart. The 5-day overnight program is designed to meet the unique needs of these children. Specially trained occupational therapists from Children’s Hospital Colorado use occupational therapy (OT) and SI principles to make this camp experience positive and motivating for Little Tree campers.

Boulder Community Hospital’s Mapleton Rehab Center Camps

These camps, PEAK Adventure Camp, for ages 9 – 13, and SUMMIT Adventure Camp, for ages 12 – 16, are offered in partnership with Boulder Community Hospital Mapleton Rehab Center.

Both Camps give children the opportunity to work on physical, behavioral and language difficulties in exciting and challenging settings. With our high therapist to child ratio, activities can be tailored to meet the individual child’s needs and to carry over therapy goals. Working on attention, language, communication, sensory and physical coordination are also built into camp activities. Emphasis is placed on interacting with
peers at camp.
