This camp is designed for elementary school-age children (campers) with selective mutism. It is a wonderful opportunity for children with selective mutism to become more comfortable and increase verbalizations with peers and adults in a supportive setting. All Freedom Camp Counselors will be specifically trained in selective mutism treatment techniques. These fun-filled days will provide campers with opportunities to practice using their brave voices in individual, small group, whole group settings, and field trips within the shopping center. The camp will be led by Catherine Eckel, Ph.D. and Dr. Agredano, both of whom specialize in the treatment of selective mutism. Parents will be provided with feedback on their child’s experience at camp. Campers are asked to bring their snacks, drinks, refillable water bottles and lunch to camp.
