What could be better?! Send your little (or not so little) fairy to create and learn only as fairies would! Fairy Dusters Camp is offered for 4-7 year olds, while Fairies & Folklore will be more fun for 6-12 year olds. Expect a little bit of fairy magic, fairy-themed crafts, fairy yoga, fairy drama, and outdoor fairy nature fun! The younger fairies will enjoy a special lunch bunch for the last half hour of camp including a special fairy-themed snack that they will help to make. Parents can send a lunch as well if preferred. The older fairies will dive deeper into fairy legends as they create drama, experience the graceful side of yoga, create fairy houses and more amazing fairy DIYs, and, of course, experience fairy magic in the forest! Dates for Fairy Camp are 7/30-8/2-- check it out and register here!

I have my Masters of Occupational Therapy degree and work as a school-based occupational therapist during the school year. I have been an OT for 18 years and have experience in diverse settings including schools, early intervention in the home, outpatient pediatrics, home health, hospitals, and nursing homes. I have worked in several pediatric OT summer camps over the years and have enjoyed using my skills to have fun with kids in more informal ways. I am certified in Sensory Integration through USC/WPS and kids yoga through YogaFit and Childlight Yoga, and have taken additional yoga courses related to OT. I have 3 children of my own and look forward to including them in my summer camp program!
