Pediatric Rehabilitation Services of Boulder Community Health is looking
forward to another year of exciting summer activities! The goal of our
program is to help children of all ages realize their greatest potential.
Our treatment philosophy is to improve a child’s overall functional
abilities while minimizing disabilities.
Our summer programs give children the opportunity to work on physical,
social 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.
Emphasis is placed on peer interaction and activities are designed to
foster improvement in the areas of attention, language, communication,
sensory processing, and physical coordination.
Our staff members are experienced and highly trained pediatric specialists.
Physical and Occupational therapists are skilled in helping children use
their muscles to explore their environment and in helping them to interpret
and learn from information in their surroundings. Speech and language
therapists assist children with communication of their thoughts and ideas.
We also assist children who have learning problems or other difficulties
in school. Therapists help children develop social skills in fun, natural settings.
Scholarships are available to help with camp costs. Families may also submit
their bill for camp to private insurance or access flexible healthcare
spending accounts. Please call for more information about funding possibilities.

2018 Summer Camp Descriptions
Food Explorers camp is designed to help picky eaters get down and dirty
in the kitchen. We will explore the textures, smells, and tastes of foods
from around the world. We will provide hands-on learning about where food
comes from, why it is important for our body, and how to turn basic foods
into delicious meals. Your child will participate in every aspect of mealtime
from setting the table, to preparing ingredients, to cleaning dishes.
Outside of meal time, we will explore our tactile senses through play,
potting plants, and turning food into art. We will also be working on
sensory calming techniques to work through challenging mealtimes. With
our experienced feeding specialists, we strive to turn your picky eater
into a food-loving chef!

SOAR Adventure Day Camp
SOAR is a summer day camp for children ages 7 to 12. It is run in collaboration
with Avid4 Adventure and is designed for children who have sensory processing,
language, attention/learning, social skills and/or motor coordination
difficulties. The camp will be run by two therapists from Boulder Community
Health in coordination with the Avid4 Adventure staff. Campers will get
to experience mountain biking, rock climbing, canoeing, hiking and kayaking
in a safe and supportive environment that is customized to their needs
and ability levels. Campers will also participate in team building/social
games, have the opportunity to set personal goals and learn how to process
the highs and lows of the day within the group setting. SOAR is a great
way for children to gain confidence in outdoor activities while also building
the skills needed for participation in our PEAK and SUMMIT sleep-away
camps. Parents drop off and pick up their children at High Peaks/BCSIS
Elementary, 3995 Aurora Ave. in Boulder.
Avid4 Adventure will provide transportation to the daily off-site activities.

SUMMIT Adventure Camp
SUMMIT is a 5 day overnight camp for children ages 12 to 16. The program
has been designed as a continuation of the PEAK Adventure Camp in order
to allow older children to further challenge themselves and to refine
skills learned at previous camps. The camp is designed to meet the individual
needs of the child and provides opportunities for children to work on
social, motor, language, self care, sensory processing and self regulation
skills in a supportive environment. SUMMIT camp will be more challenging
than the PEAK camp and will include river rafting and outdoor camping
experiences, as well as activities done on the BOEC grounds. This camp
will be run by two therapists from Boulder Community Health in coordination
with the BOEC staff. Parents drop off and pick up their children in Breckenridge
at the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC).Sign Up Here
