Creating Confident Printers Camp – Printing Basics (Growing Changes)

Creating Confident Printers – Printing Basics

January 2023 – Registration now open!

A four-week fun and interactive camp for children around the grades of 1 – 3 who find printing or other fine motor activities challenging. The camp will be run by an experienced pediatric Occupational Therapist. A multi-sensory approach combining fine and gross motor movement to enhance learning will be used along with co-operative games and crafts to practice the skills needed for hand functioning.

The camp places an emphasis on grasp development, formation of lower-case letters, legible printing, copying shapes and letters, using school tools (pencils, scissors, glue), in hand manipulation skills, eye hand coordination and strength.

Also included is a short summary report identifying individual children’s strengths, areas of need, and suggestions for further skill development. The summary report will be provided at the end of the group for parents to learn how to support their child with printing practice at home.

This camp is designed for children who may be experiencing mild to moderate delays in fine motor development or would benefit from extra practice.

A printing sample is required with registration to confirm the child’s placement in the most appropriate group.

Days: January 21 & 28 February 4 & 11, 2023 (4 Saturday sessions)

Time: 10:00 am – 11:15 am

Cost: $300.00
