summer camp for special needs kids??
This summer I will be working at a camp for special needs children. Is there any advice or stories you could give me? I am actually a bit nervous! I love children, but i have only worked with one special need child in the past, so working with 8 children will be a challenge! Also what kind of creative activites could I plan for them?
I used to go to Texas Lions’ Camp for children with disabilities and diabetes when I was young. I think I went 7 summers. First, don’t be nervous, the kids can pick up on that which may make them uncomfortable. Second, almost any activity that “regular” kids can do can be modified for children with special needs. There are many websites that deal with adaptive activities. Just search for “adaptive” sports, activities, play, or similar terms. Lastly, have a fun time and the good memories will stay a lifetime with those children.
I need help- Camping,fun for kids,not a lot of people and boating in MN?
Ideas on where?
my hubby and I want to bring the kids camping for labor day weekend but I also want to get in some awesome fishing, be secluded, but also fun for my kids that are 4 and 5? any ideas? Please…lol
I agree with BOBBER. Labor Day weekend is the busiest camping day of the year. If you want seclusion, you’re going to have to go north.
I like to camp in state and national forests, but with young children, you’d be better off in a state park as they have campsites and bathrooms.
Need ideas for something to teahc at job interview for kids day camp?
I have a group job interview for a kids day camp, and need something to teach the other people in the interview that I could teach to children. Would kids like a game, or learn how to do a song in sign language more? What games would be good. Something that can be done indoors, and not require props.
A song in sign would be fun. Games are great.
Game: Band-Aid Tag
How the game is played: In this variation, when a child is tagged, he or she places a hand on the spot that was tagged. The child must keep a hand on that spot for the rest of the game. If the child gets tagged a second time, a hand must be placed on the second spot. Now the child has used up all the band-aids. If tagged a third time, the child must go to the “hospital” (the sidelines) and do five jumping jacks to “get well” and rejoin the game.
What the game teaches: Motor skill, agility, and teamwork.
You had to have at least three people to play but an unlimited number could join in.
Everyone would gather in a tight circle and make a fist with both hands and hold their fists out in the center of the circle. I cant remember exactly how we chose who would be the counter (I think it was whoever was the bossiest at the moment!).[See Picking Who is IT] But anyway, the counter would take one of her fists and tap everyone’s fists (including her own) as she said this rhyme: Bubble gum, Bubble gum, in a dish. How many pieces do you wish?
Who ever she taps last would give a number between 1 and 20. Then the counter would again tap everyone’s fists as he/she counted to the specified number. Who ever she landed on had to take that fist out of the circle and place their hand behind their back. Then the counter would start all over again with the Bubble gum, Bubble gum….and repeat the process. Once both of your fists were tapped, you were out. And this went on until it narrowed it down to one-the winner. Now, a lot of times we used this to help us decide on certain issues-kinda like a fair way of voting on who would be leader for the day or something silly like that. Other times we just played it over and over again to see who won the most and was declared the champion of the day. It was fun and very simple to learn.
Below are several websites with a lot more ideas. Good luck!
