Pirate Speech Camp
The five-week Pirate Speech Camp meets three mornings a week and serves 16 children ages four to 13.
The camp provides structure throughout the summer, ensuring an easy transition back to the classroom in the fall.
The Speech camp provides skill-building activities in a five-week program to address deficits in speech and language. Children learn how to ask questions, how to initiate and maintain conversations and how to interact with others. ECU graduate students in communication sciences and disorders plan activities and work with the children.
“The camp program is a theme-based, language enrichment program that is structured to include the language of the classroom,” said camp director Lori Kincannon.
“We work on language and communication skills and…the familiarity of the classroom structure is there," she said.
