We are an Inclusive Day Camp Program!
The Wellington North Summer Day Camp Program will be using the Camps on TRACKS program, which is a peer-mediated social skills program designed to increase social interactions and inclusion for campers with disabilities and social challenges (Sperry et al., 2010). It is implemented by teaching peers the skills they need to interact with these campers, in order to make camp a fun and rewarding experience for all (Sperry et al., 2010). Teaching peers is essential to the approach, as it allows them to naturally prompt for appropriate social skills in the camp setting. In these peer-mediated interventions, peers who are typically developing are trained to initiate social interactions with and respond to social interactions from their peers with disabilities (Battaglia & Radley, 2014).
Camps on TRACKS is named for the skills that are taught to peers in a child-friendly acronym. These six components in the Camps on TRACKS program provide peers with strategies to interact with campers with social challenges.
1. Try Again (Persistence)
2. Right Thing (Correcting)
3. Assist (Prompting)
4. Congratulate (Reinforcement)
5. Keep Trying (Persistence)
6. Show (Modeling)
