Xpress Yourself Social Skills Camp
The camp curriculum is designed to help children gain skills in :
Building strong and healthy peer relationships
Coping with bullying and other social challenges
Learning to identify and express feelings in a constructive manner
Creating organizational strategies for school and life
During camp, therapists work with groups of children using techniques such as role play, relaxation, art, games, and music along with other more traditional therapy techniques.
The week-long camps can serve as a starter or a booster to our ongoing social skills groups, or they can provide your child with a fulfilling experience.

Session 2: July 22 - July 26 (N. Potomac Location)
Our camp program is offered for children who will be entering Preschool through 8th grade in the upcoming school year. Children are placed in camp groups based on their age and needs.
Back to School Mindfulness Camp: Reconnecting with Yourself and Others
Does your child or adolescent struggle with transitions? Stress management? Anxiety?
In this one-week group therapy themed camp, children, "tweens" and teens will engage in fun and relaxing mindfulness-based activities to strengthen awareness of their emotions, thoughts, and physical sensations. Through Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction Therapy (MBSR-T), your child or adolescent will access their individual strengths and utilize their five senses to acquire new skills and techniques to help keep them grounded and centered as they transition back to school.
The week will incorporate elements from psychodrama (play and improvisational theater), art therapy, wilderness therapy, yoga, and culinary components.
