Summer Camps 2022

Saratoga Sensory is excited to offer summer camps for children of all abilities!

Occupational Therapy Summer Camps

What makes Saratoga Sensory summer camps different? Not only are camps provided in a sensory enriched environment, but they are also run by a master’s level occupational therapist with extensive sensory expertise. Camps will be provided as a small group, limited to 4 children. These camps are open to individuals of all abilities.
