At Camp Tall Tree, we train our staff to be comfortable with a wide variety of communication strategies. Some of our campers rarely or never verbalize, and we have visual supports to support those campers. We work with many campers who have never been away from home before, and we work with campers who have unexpected behaviors on occasion. We DO expect campers to be independent with toileting and showering. We can offer verbal and visual prompts in the bathroom, but we do not train our staff to help with hands on assistance in the bathroom or shower. Campers who are routinely aggressive or engage in frequent, dangerous behavior (such as running away or eating non-food items) are not a good fit for our program.
