Summer holidays are around the corner and our therapy team have begun preparing for summer camps!

Three exciting summer camps await and we hope that there is something to suit all tastes! Each camp is unique and designed with a different skill-set in mind, but all three camps are unified in their focus on building functional skills while having a lot of FUN!
