A 3 hour, week-long play therapy summer camp focusing on emotion regulation, peer relations, and many other social skills.

Looking for an enriching experience for your child this summer? Or maybe you’re hoping to keep your child’s social skills growing while they are away from school?

This play therapy summer camp will help kids ages 5-7… 

  • Learn how to identify their emotions
  • Learn and practice new coping skills
  • Increase social connection with other peers
  • Explore and practice key communication skills
  • Practice rule following with compassionate adults
  • Increase their self-esteem by learning emotional regulation

The Play Therapy Summer Camp will focus on teaching kids about emotions, coping skills, and increasing social connection in a fun and hands-on way. During camp kids will play games, do art, and learn throughout the hands-on activities. There will be both structured and unstructured play during the 3-hour span, so kids will have a chance to learn in multiple types of environments and connect with their peers.

Course will run Monday-Friday, June 10-14, 9am-12pm in person at The Center for Mindfulness & CBT in Creve Coeur.
