Just Right is a 5 or 10-week summer camp focused on social/emotional growth, school readiness and regulation. Led by Special Educators and Developmental Therapists group sizes are small to ensure intense therapeutic support. To aid with the integration of various aspects of a child’s development, groups are supported by Occupational Therapists and help at both our clinics in Northfield and Libertyville, IL.
Each day includes a consistent schedule that incorporates supported free play with intense work on social skills, structured circle time, and activities focused on gross, fine and sensory motor development. Children are encouraged and supported to share their ideas, respond to peers and follow directions. Academic readiness is taught throughout the day by harnessing meaningful and engaging concepts and adapting the curriculum based upon individual learning styles.
With 1,2,3,4 and 5-day options, parents can choose either mornings or afternoons to fit their family’s needs, as well as to cater to the individual profile of the child.
At Kick Start Pediatric Therapy Network, we utilize a team-based approach that values open communication. We welcome parents and caregivers to join camp, when desired, so that valuable information and strategies can be shared.

Here's what parents are saying about our summer camp
"My son attended the Just Right camp this summer and it was such a positive and fulfilling experience for him. He was so excited to go to camp and had so many wonderful things to tell us after camp. The instructors and staff were so nurturing and kind and the progress my son made in a few weeks was amazing. Erika answered every question we had and was very organized and very clear about information and progress reports. We were so impressed with the quality of the camp and the time Erika put in toward the very detailed camp blog was exceptional. My son had the best experience with Just Right camp, and we did as well." - - Heather A.
"Our family was referred to Kick Start Camp by our son’s preschool. At first we thought of it as a way for our son to get some additional socialization skills without the pressure of a traditional camp or daycare, but the experience for our son and our family was so much more enriching. We had recognized prior to the start of camp opportunities for our son in self regulation and sensory integration. Erika identified several realistic and achievable goals for Luca to be coached and work on during the 8 week camp. While we knew Kick Start Camp would benefit him, we did not count on his unwavering love of camp and the new found support structure. Our son went from a child sometimes unsure of himself in large groups and getting overwhelmed to having a greater confidence and patience that we had not seen previously in him. He came home with new phrases like “Is this toy for taking turns?” and an understanding of what that meant. As a parent on this journey with our son, we could not have asked for anything better. Kick Start Camp offered a development program modified to suit our sons development needs, staff that was knowledgeable and communicative with the child and family and an environment that let the kids be kids."
