Currently there are two Canadian camps for children who stutter that will take place this summer. These camps are NOT speech therapy camps, rather they each seek to create a social environment for kids who stutter to be with other kids who share the same challenge with speaking. The camps focus on the development of social skills, self-esteem and coping techniques. Speech Language Pathologists will be helping to run the camps and be available for consultation.
This camp, run by the British Columbia Association of People who Stutter has been around since 2000, with great success. This year's session runs July 2 - July 5, 2015. Camp fees are subsidized for those who live in B.C. Get more information and the registration form from the website.
UPDATE: Laughter's Voice camp has been postponed until summer 2015.
