Handwriting Camps

Our handwriting camps for kids are designed to support developmental skills for handwriting. Activities address fine and gross motor skills, including postural stability, visual motor skills, perceptual skills and body awareness. Children benefit from the group setting with fun activities that encourage participation and support social skills.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19, our Handwriting Camps have been canceled for the summer of 2020.
