Your kids will come home from Fantastic Magic Camp every day, eager to share their newly learned skills in magic, juggling and puppetry.
They will insist that you play with the new puppet they made. They will tell you all about their newly acquired skills in juggling or about how they learned to ride a unicycle.
They will have stories about the amazing professional magician, juggler, clown, ventriloquist or puppet show they watched.
But mostly, they will talk endlessly about the new friends they made.
Fantastic Magic Camp is designed for elementary-aged children, generally ages 5 through 12. All 5 year olds who attend camp will be in a counselor group with the younger campers, and will have a counselor with special skills in working with younger children.
At the older age range they will be in a counselor group with older kids, we may get 13 year olds (or even the occasional 14 year old) for several reasons, for example, a teen with special needs who operates younger than his or her chronological age.
Although our staff has limited training for kids with severe disabilities, we have had some wonderful successes with children diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, OCD, Tourette’s syndrome, Down syndrome, Asperger’s syndrome, autism, mental retardation, vision impairment, hearing impairment, severe emotional distress, prostheses and other challenges. And we are eager to try to meet the needs of any child.
We cannot afford to provide individual attendants for kids with special needs, but if an attendant is required, we will allow the attendant to enjoy the camp without paying tuition. The child pays; the attendant goes free.
