Camp Nurture is a therapeutic day camp for adopted children, age 5-9, with trauma and attachment challenges. This 5-day pilot program will offer a structured combination of playfully engaging, sensory, and therapeutic activities to nurture the children’s ability to self-regulate and connect with others. Children will attend Nurture groups designed to build capacity to seek and receive care, Life-Skills groups to facilitate children’s ability to process change and loss, as well as identify and express emotions, Movement groups for learning self-regulation strategies, and Art Groups. Each child will be matched with a Camp Buddy who will support the child’s exploration and provide safety and nurturing engagement. Parents will be expected to attend all (5) pre-camp parent training sessions as well as parent sessions during the camp.
