Summer camp is a quintessential childhood experience. That’s why UNC Children’s offers Helping Kids with Hemiplegia, a no-cost therapeutic day camp for kids ages 3 to 10 with motor impairment on one side of their bodies.
The camp, founded by UNC Children’s occupational therapist, Holly Holland, and staffed by licensed occupational and physical therapists and student volunteers, incorporates modified constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) into fun, goal-oriented games and activities. As a parent, you’ll attend concurrent educational programming and social gatherings. Since 2005, more than 200 children and their families have attended this annual 10-day summer program. Helping Kids with Hemiplegia is limited to 35 campers. Learn more at Hemiplegia Summer Camp.
