Improve academics and regulation with a fun, hands-on and active camp! Focuses on motor, auditory and visions skills with fun activities for healthy brain development!
S.M.A.R.T. Boost Up Plus is a multi-sensory program that gives children the academic readiness skills they need to reach their full potential. Our goal is physical and cognitive skills development with this fun, hands-on and active 3-week camp. We believe physical movement directly influences one's ability to learn, think and remember, ultimately giving any child the confidence they need to achieve success in and out of the classroom.
The program incorporates developmentally appropriate gross motor, fine motor, auditory and vision work through a fun and challenging set of physical activities designed for healthy brain development.
Our classes range in ages from 5 to 11-years-old. Classes are divided into ages 5-6 and 7-11. Class sizes are limited to nine participants. The class is led by an experienced S.M.A.R.T. trained educator, Patrick Dreher, MS, Special Education and Adaptive Physical Education teacher.
To learn more about the program, we recommend you review the benefits of S.M.A.R.T. as well as how to easily implement S.M.A.R.T. activities in your everyday home setting. You will learn a bit of theory and a lot of activities!

A Message from the Teacher:
Every child has their own starting point and progress means different things for different people. We begin with an initial assessment to see where the child is and identify what skills we want to work on over the course of the camp. We make individualized adaptations as much as possible, and the activities and obstacle courses change from day to day.
The program includes activities like belly crawling, balance beams, overhead ladders, fine motor work stations and more. We meet the students at their level by making the course incrementally harder or easier, depending on their individual needs. They appreciate the changes and that excitement fuels their motivation to reach their potential for that day.
“Once they know they have that power, they will begin to see that if they put in the work, they are going to make progress. Confidence breeds success, and success breeds more success."
- Patrick Dreher
