EVERYTHING IS THERAPY
AT BAY CLIFF

Speech & Language Therapy Campers work on articulation, phonology, receptive and expressive language, social skills, pragmatics, and using augmentative devices. Occupational Therapy (OT) Campers work on self-care, fine motor and visual motor skills, sensory integration and life skills, like cooking and money management. Physical Therapy (PT) Campers work on independent mobility, strengthening, endurance, balance and coordination, and gross motor skills like running, hopping, skipping and jumping. Co-Treatment Campers work with more than one therapist, to combine specialties and target skill growth (pictured: OT & PT co-treatment). Therapy Groups Campers work in a group setting on skills they all benefit from. Groups are offered from each therapy specialty and vary from year to year (pictured: Yoga). Activity Classes Along with their peers, campers work toward their therapy goals during a variety of fun, engaging camp activities (pictured: Archery). Therapy Carryover Daily practice and repetition are crucial in campers meeting their goals for the summer. Therapists, counselors and campers work together on carryover plans for the best succes.

Responsible Stewards of the Gifts We Receive

From the very beginning, Bay Cliff has operated almost exclusively on the generosity of others. That’s why we never take anything for granted. From a single napkin to the largest building, we are grateful for the kindness of others.

Through fundraising efforts like our Campership Appeal, we are able to accept most children at little-to-no cost for their families, and offer all families significant financial aid.
