ONE-OF-A-KIND VIRTUAL MAGIC CAMP!
This class is specifically designed for individuals on the autism spectrum and those who may have limited movement, sensory and/or complex communication needs.
Through the art of magic, campers will explore their curiosity and develop creativity and confidence.  They will also learn to develop presentations, write a script, and perform their magic with finesse and flair. We will learn amazing magic tricks performed with items easily found at home – paper clips, rubber bands, money, toothpicks, cards, pencils, etc! Participants should have a cognitive level of age 7 + and should plan to attend class with a caregiver, parent or sibling. The camp will culminate with a “live stream” performance for family and friends!

AGES: (cognitive) 7+
