Since 2009, LifeScape has been offering skill-building, therapy-based summer “camps.” These sessions with experienced pediatric therapists are a different, fun way to meet therapy goals, usually in a group setting. Our summer day camps provide skill-building fun in areas such as speech and language, social skills, sensory processing, handwriting, and more. Camps are offered in both Rapid City and Sioux Falls. Some are available for insurance coverage.
A limited number of scholarships are available for these camps, and some are eligible for insurance coverage.
