Summer Camps

Camp Iceberg

infoCamp Iceberg 2020 is a go!

We will conduct camp online via Zoom the week of 7/13-7/17/20. There will be a one-hour Zoom session each day from 1-2 p.m. All campers will participate simultaneously. Tuition will be reduced to $125 from $250 to adjust for the reduction in time compared to traditional camp. See you in the virtual world!

Does your child stutter? Then Camp Iceberg is the place to be this summer! This week-long intensive program is designed to help your child learn more about what stuttering is and to learn how people live with stuttering successfully and thrive! Ages: Upper Elementary to Middle School
