Lakeland hosts sensory summer camp

ST. JOSEPH — Children ages four to 12, with physical or behavioral issues that prevent them from enrolling in a traditional summer camp, are invited to experience a fun and active group environment during the Lakeland Health Sensory Camp led by certified physical, speech, and occupational therapists.

Activities are presented in a consistent routine and include sensory motor exercises, balance and coordination, obstacle courses, socialization opportunities, and gross motor tasks, among others.

“Through our work with pediatric patients, we recognized a need in our community for parents with children who have a diagnosis of autism, sensory processing disorder, or traumatic brain injuries to want their children to still be able to experience all of the joys that summer camp offers,” said physical therapist Keri Pawielski, PT, Lakeland Rehabilitation Services.

Sensory Camp will be held Mondays, June 13, 20, 27 and July 11, 18, 25 at Power in Motion Gymnastics, located at 3889 S. M-139 in St. Joseph. Children ages four to seven will meet from 2 to 3 p.m. and children ages 8 to 12 will meet from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Cost of the camp is $90 per camper, due by the first day of camp.

Space for the camp is limited. For more information or to register, call (269) 428-2799.
