During Summer Trip Camp Parents are not allowed to pack for the overnight trips. We teach the kids how to pack for the trips and teach many other practical, executive functioning strategies to build independent skills.
When you do things for your child that they can learn to do on their own they are missing an opportunity to develop their executive functioning and independence. Building these skills build self-confidence and a sense of autonomy.
Below is a visual we use to teach how to pack and organize clothes when we’re away on our weekly overnight trips.
Summer Trip Camp is based in Margate. Learn more: www summertripcamp.com
