The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society (LDSS) will host its tenth annual Camp Buddy summer camps in Chatham and Effingham Counties later this month and in July.
Camp Buddy offers programs to prepare children for the upcoming school year with the goal of promoting information retention from the previous year. Special education teachers along with occupational, physical and speech therapists have worked to design a customized curriculum that meets this goal most effectively.
This year’s Chatham Camp Buddy, July 9 – 20, will have a Dr. Seuss theme designed to bring a whimsical twist to camp activities such as music, dance, arts and crafts as well as bike, trike and scooter board riding.
Chatham County campers in high school will cook lunch for their parents, embark on a river trip and have visits from special guests. They also will participate in community service projects such as food donations and will visit Harvesters, a community food network, to learn about volunteer opportunities.
Effingham Camp Buddy, June 18-22, will feature special guests.
