WE GET IT!!!!
Being home all day can be a challenge for both parents and children. You may be asking yourself, "What do we do now that summer is here, traveling is limited, but is also safe for my child? What can our child do so that they are learning skills AND having fun?"
At, A Better Me: Virtual Skills Camp, your child will have the opportunity to:
- Have Fun!!!!!!
- Have a structured schedule.
- Build new skills.
- Make new friends online.
- Be better prepared when the new school year begins.
- Learn from the safety of their home.
- Did we say, Have Fun?!!!!!
Parents, some of the challenges that you may have experienced while teaching and guiding your child's remote learning experiences this past school year were most likely social or emotional.
WE CAN HELP!!!!
We will teach your child skills that will help them as well as help you, their parents, as you continue to train and guide your child socially and emotionally through their developmental years.
Yes, summer camps are all about having fun. Why not have fun, while learning much needed social skills that will last for a lifetime?
Our camps are online, live, interactive and our groups are small. Each group will have multiple sessions to ensure the class sizes stay between 5-7 campers. No exceptions. This format allows your child the opportunity to socialize, connect with other students, and have personal interactions with their counselor.
Children have fun learning valuable skills, receive coaching in applying these skills, and gain encouraging feedback from their peers.
A Better Me: Virtual Skills Camp campers will receive their camp materials with everything that they will need before the start of camp. In each packet, campers will receive incentives and other motivational items that encourage continued use of the skills that will be taught.
After the conclusion of camp, you will receive an extensive letter summarizing skills of focus, areas of growth and recommendations on how you can continue to develop your child's social and emotional skills.
Below are a list of the skills that we will be teaching:
- Executive Functioning Skills
