United Fund of Iowa County Funds Therapy-Based Summer Camp
Each summer the Upland Hills Health Therapy & Wellness Center offers a therapy-based summer camp to support physical, occupational, and speech therapy needs of local kids. This year the United Fund of Iowa County generously supported this summer camp with a $1,500 gift toward the program, scheduled to begin in July.
Therapists at UHH say summer is a great time to give children the extra attention they need.
“The summer camp we offer provides a great opportunity for children in the area who need a little extra time to strengthen important skills,” explains Renee Weber, Physical Therapist at UHH.
The program is for kids who may benefit from therapy-based educational and support services during the summer months, when school is not in session. Campers will get their bodies moving, work on writing and language skills, and learn in a fun, play-based environment. Each day participants will work on coordination, balance and strength through movement, handwriting and fine motor control.
Funding support from the United Fund of Iowa County is instrumental in UHH providing this opportunity for area youth.
“Without this funding, the camp may have been delayed another year,” Julia Oellerich, director of the UHH Foundation explains. “We are grateful to UFIC for providing the funds needed to offer this beneficial camp to kids this summer.”
