How can sending your child with special needs to camp benefit the whole family? 

Camp High Hopes provides year-round programs and respite care that positively impact all family members. 

Benefits to campers: While at camp, campers learn new skills, challenge limitations, gain independence, overcome fears, and build self-esteem through adaptive, therapeutic recreational activities.  

Benefits to caregivers: When your child attends camp, you get a break. Your child is having fun and is well taken care of, so you can focus on work, recharge, or spend time with others.  

Benefits to families: You and your child will meet others facing similar challenges. Expanding your social circle improves physical and mental health.  

Camp High Hopes offers programs throughout the year to fit the needs of your family.

What is a baby spa? 

While you can find baby spas throughout Canada, Australia, and Europe, the concept is still quite new in the United States. In fact, there are currently only four in the nation, and one of them is right here in Sioux Falls! 

Baby spas provide tools to help you navigate the first year and a half of your baby’s life. Services include infant massage classes, water movement, and other important parent and caregiver education. These tools are known to help with common issues such as gas, colic, and constipation. They are also great ways to help with bonding between the baby and parent, baby’s sleep and appetite, and simply help your baby to relax.

What to know when booking a Motherhood Bundle? 

 When I had my first born, over 15 years ago, I had no idea what to expect and photos were the last thing on my mind. What I didn’t know is that in the blink of an eye he’d be a little ‘man’ and a few years away from graduating high school! Time flies too fast, and that’s exactly why I offer this bundle where I take care of all the planning, so you can enjoy every moment, stress free. 

We’ll kickstart our journey together with a maternity session, then capture baby’s fresh features with a lifestyle newborn session and plan a family session highlighting your new additions at the age of your choice within 12 months.
