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 for the program.
Activities will include a special field trip, crafts, music, dancing, pet therapy and operating the camp store.
This year’s Chatham Camp Buddy will have a Super Hero theme designed to bring an action-filled twist to camp activities such as music, dance, arts and crafts as well as STEM activities, baking and math games.
Chatham County high school campers will ride the city bus to visit Bitty and Beau’s coffee shop where they will learn about employment, make cookies and deliver them to the Ronald McDonald House. They also will pack food at America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia.
