Camps address behavioral issues through fun and educational activities

CRYSTAL LAKE – Rosecrance McHenry County is offering a summer series of Wellness Camps tailored to meet the needs of children and teens struggling with self-esteem, social isolation or other emotional issues who may need an alternative to traditional summer programs.

Wellness camps focus on creating a fun and interactive environment in which children and teens who deal with behavioral health problems can learn how to empower themselves and effectively manage their behaviors.

Rosecrance summer camps focus on relationships, self-esteem, leadership, problem solving, and personal achievement. Camps are five days and run Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm at the Rosecrance Crystal Lake Office, 422 Tracy Court. Camps begin the weeks of June 9, July 7 and August 11.

Cost is $150 a day or $700 for the five-day program. Camps are covered by Medicaid and may be eligible for reimbursement by some insurance companies. Program includes daily group therapy, art and music therapy, meditation/yoga, lunch and snacks, wellness and nutrition education, and medication administration if needed.

All camps are facilitated by licensed and certified clinicians. For a complete listing of camps and registration information, visit rosecrance.org/summercamp.
