ASK Bilingual Summer Day Camp
come and play – 11 July – 5 August 2016
Making and playing with friends are two things that children do naturally and are skills that we ordinarily take for granted. Yet for many children with special needs and related learning differences, these two aspects of childhood do not come easily. The effects of specific learning differences may in fact preclude children from interacting appropriately with their peers. They are challenged to acquire the “unspoken” rules of social behavior and poor self-esteem, low frustration tolerance and problems with anger and/or aggression are a constant source of concern for parents and teachers.
ASK Bilingual Summer Day Camp is dedicated to offering a special haven for children aged 5-19 who have Learning Differences and Special Educational Needs. The fully integrated programme allows children to develop their social skills, creativity and learning through fun games and activities, which are structured according to age and the child’s skill level. Our highly qualified staff include child psychologists, experienced specialist teachers, counselors, a speech therapist, an ABA therapist and a nurse.
ASK Bi-lingual Summer Day Camp – where Creativity and Learning go hand in hand
Our unique programme offer:
- 1:1 camper to staff ratio
- multi-sensory games which encourage team building and group interaction
- social skills activities which allow self-discovery and build self confidence
- arts and crafts – exploration through different art mediums to encourage imagination and creativity
- drama and music with a weekly group performance
- 1:2 tutoring by SpLD specialist tutors for children wanting support in specific subjects
- outings to explore nature and local culture
Creative Communication Skills or Social Skills
This programme teaches children the fundamental communication skills to learn sharing, cooperation, conflict resolution through team building exercises at the same time instill empathy in each child to build self-confidence and self-control, through self-discovery and a sense of accomplishment through positive peer interaction. Multi-sensory tools and different medium art materials are used to allow children to express their creativity.
We offer one to one tutoring in literacy and numeracy for children having difficulties at school, using games and activities to make learning fun. The study skills program also allows children to repeat what they have learned during the mainstream school year and get them ready and motivated for the next school year.

You can park your car at the main parking lot. Just turn into the school after the school sign and park it behind the main building.
