Speech School Summer Camps
The Atlanta Speech School's wide variety of engaging summer programs are offered throughout the season for children as young as 2 1/2 years old through 6th grader. Camps, classes, remediation and therapy, and activities, all in a language-rich environment, are available for children in the community as well as for those already in the Speech School Family.
The Kenan Preschool Camp Explorations offers weekly camps for children ages 2 1/2-5 (must be 2 1/2 by June 1). Campers experience fun and adventure with activities designed to encourage campers to experience the world in which they live. Campers can go week to week, at a cost of $250/week.
Stepping Stones Camp Wiggle & Giggles is for children ages 3 and 4 with speech and/or language delays. Camp teachers include Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs), Occupational Therapists (OTs) and Educational Specialists. Campers participate in activities that are fun, creative, language-rich and developmentally suited to the age group. Because of the therapeutic nature of the camp, parents will enroll for all four weeks, at a cost of $2,500. Stepping Stones also offers camp for rising kindergarten students called Smart Start.
The Katherine Hamm Center Camp Chatterbox is suited for preschool children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Through language rich experiences and instruction, camp activities focus on developing communication skills, auditory comprehension, speech production and spoken language. Because of the therapeutic nature of the camp, parents will enroll for all four weeks, at a cost of $2,500 for campers aged 3-5 or $1,564 for campers age 2 (Junior Camp Chatterbox - which has a slightly shorter day).

The Clinic of the Atlanta Speech School offers it's own camp, Camp Wonder (for Rising Kindergarten - Rising 4th graders/students ages 5-8). Camp Wonder offers intensive speech, spoken language, and literacy one-week camps for children with mild to moderate speech and language delays focusing on the integration of social language skills, narrative writing, receptive/expressive language skills, literacy skills, and articulation. Camp activities focus on the integration and application of skills across contexts and within a group setting. As part of the application for camp, a speech-language evaluation, plan of care, and/or Individualized Education Program (IEP), completed within this past year, must be submitted. Additionally, an observation/informal screening will be scheduled for each child to determine skill level and access to the camp curriculum. For other Clinic summer offerings please visit our Clinic Summer Programs page.
All camps are closed on June 19th in observance of Juneteenth and July 4th in observance of the Fourth of July.
For each camp, the age cut-off is June 1.
