Camp SAY is the life changing summer camp for kids & teens who stutter. 2017 Summer dates are August 1st – 15th.
SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young offers three unique & comprehensive programs for young people who stutter:
SAY: Confident Voices – After-School & Weekend Programs
Our Confident Voices After-School & Weekend program leverages the performing arts – Storytelling, Songwriting, Playwriting, Mentorship and more - to help young people who stutter develop self-confidence, build communication skills and establish crucial friendships. Created as a project-based program, Confident Voices provides kids & teens who stutter with an environment of acceptance and respect, where they can safely share their goals and ideas. The program provides a highly-individualized experience to generate the most profound results. Confident Voices is currently offered free of charge, in the NYC Tri-state area.

Camp SAY combines the highest-quality, traditional summer camp experience, with comprehensive activities and innovative programs that empower young people who stutter. Our 2-week American Camp Association (ACA) accredited sleep-away camp (one-week and shortened stays are also available) provides a highly immersive summer camp experience that builds self-confidence and helps young people develop the vital communication skills they need to fully express themselves. Parents and campers call Camp SAY “life-changing.” Camp SAY tuition and travel are offered on a sliding scale basis so all kids & teens can access this unique camp program.

SAY: Speech Therapy
Our program offers a unique depth of experience, since we work exclusively with young people who stutter, ages 2-18. We develop individual treatment plans based on each child’s unique challenges and goals, and tailor strategies for pre-school and school-aged children and teens. Our comprehensive services include speech therapy consultations, diagnostic evaluations, individual speech therapy sessions, group therapy sessions, Teletherapy (across the country & beyond), school and classroom presentations, youth support groups, parent groups, Speech-Language Pathologist groups, stuttering education, and more. Speech therapy and evaluations are offered on a sliding scale basis so all kids & teens can access this program.
Please visit www.SAY.org and www.CampSAY.org to learn even more about our programs! We understand how important it is to find the perfect fit for each child, so in addition to answering any questions that you may have, we would be delighted to connect you with a current SAY parent - or an SLP who has referred a child to our programs - so you may hear first-hand the impact that our programs have on young people who stutter.
