We are excited to offer this opportunity again to children of the National region, and surrounding areas, following positive feedback from both parents and attendees from the previous years. The Express Yourself! Teen camp is based on a program offered at the University of Iowa’s Wendell Johnson Speech and Hearing Clinic. The general idea is to provide an opportunity for children who stutter to meet, share experiences and support each other, while challenging them to go outside their comfort zone and gain confidence in using speech skills or stuttering easily. We have several special activities, initiatives, and guest speakers planned.
Here are details on the dates, hours and location:
Ages: Proposed for students in grades 5-8; high school students are welcome to apply. Contact the clinic for other treatment options for this age group.
Date: July 12th – 16th, 2021
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. daily (please pick up the campers by 4:00 p.m. at the latest)
Location: Interprofessional Clinic at the Perley Rideau, 1750 Russell Rd., Ottawa ON, K1G 5Z6

There will be a Sign In/Out Sheet to be signed every day. For security purposes, we ask that you inform us of who will be picking up your child from the camp each day and to bring a piece of ID that we can verify at the time of pick-up.
Campers should dress for vigorous activity. There will be an hour of physical activity most days, so shorts and sneakers are appropriate.
Guest appearances will be scheduled for the event. If you have any concerns with them participating in this event and observing your child, please let us know.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 613-526-7125 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Information can also be found on our website
