We are planning to run our summer camp program this year and registration is now open. We will not be taking any payment until May 1, 2021 in case restrictions change.
In 2021, Calgary Apraxia Parents Exchange is running it’s 5th Annual summer camps for children with Apraxia. The camps will be run by Speech Language Pathologists, but will not have speech therapy sessions. Instead we are building a summer camp that is full of language rich activities that the children can enjoy along with peers that have similar communication challenges.
Please note that these camps are for children with apraxia, suspected apraxia, motor planning speech disorders, or suspected motor planning speech disorders.
We are fundraising for our Summer Camp Program – check our facebook page for how to help!

Full details coming soon, but it will be another fun year that includes trips to the Zoo and Science Centre; and week 2 with kids ages 8 and up will include special visit from Engineering for Kids that has lots of science activities planned for the kids.
Location – Bridgeland Community Centre
Hours – The full day camps will be Monday to Friday, 8:30am – 4:30pm; the half day camps will be 8:30am – noon; 1:00 – 4:30pm
Camps are un-parented, and are run by an SLP and an aide. And there will only be 8-10 children per camp.
For each week of camp there will be a planned schedule to be posted soon!
Costs for the camps are $75/week for the half day camps, and $150/week for full day camps.
**Please note that camp drop off and pick up will be at the Science Centre and Zoo on the Tuesday/Thursday of each week. We are doing this to save costs, which allow us to pass on savings to our campers.
Kids will be required to have indoor and outdoor shoes, and to be dressed for the weather. Each student will also be required to bring a lunch and 2 snacks, or just a snack for the half day camps (peanut free please).
And there will be a family celebration on the Friday of each camp where the families of the children can come and meet each other, this is included in the cost of the camp.Due to staffing ratios, rental space accessibility, and our desire to fill an otherwise unmet need in the Calgary summer day camp scene, participants at Camp CHAOS should meet the following criteria:
