Summer 2014 - Camps for children who stutter in Canada

Currently there are two Canadian camps for children who stutter that will take place this summer. These camps are NOT speech therapy camps, rather they each seek to create a social environment for kids who stutter to be with other kids who share the same challenge with speaking. The camps focus on the development of social skills, self-esteem and coping techniques. Speech Language Pathologists will be helping to run the camps and be available for consultation.

Camp BCAPS

This camp, run by the British Columbia Association of People who Stutter has been around since 2000, with great success. This year's session runs June 27th - 30th. Camp fees are subsidized for those who live in B.C. Get more information and the registration form from the website.

Laughter's Voice

UPDATE: Laughter's Voice camp has been postponed until summer 2015.

This is a new camp whose first session will be this July, 13 - 19, in Mansfield, Ontario. For more information see the website, and the CSA article.

The co-founders of the proposed upcoming camp for kids who stutter in Ontario are interviewed on Daniele Rossi's Stuttering is Cool podcast site. Andrea Skinner and her son Felix describe why they started the camp and what campers can expect from it. They deal with some technical recording mishaps due to being outside in the cold weather, but it is a fun and informative interview. Andrea makes a great point about the speech therapists who participate in the camp: that it is important for them to have the chance to see the children in a non-clinical environment. Check it out!
