(EFFINGHAM, GA) The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society is hosting their annual Camp Buddy summer camp in Effingham County. This educational and therapeutic camp starts Monday, June 23 and ends Friday, June 27 at Rincon Elementary School. (www.ldssga.org) Effingham Camp Buddy is for children of all ages with Down syndrome. Special education, occupational, physical and speech therapists have designed a customized curriculum to help children retain information they learned during the previous school year. The goal of Camp Buddy is to promote retention of information by offering programs to prepare children for the upcoming school year. This year’s camp activities include music, dance, arts and crafts, as well as bike, trike and scooter board riding. After camp, each camper is sent home with an individualized therapy plan and a medal.
