Camp Escapades is an innovative two-week summer day camp for children with special needs and developmental delays who are 5 to 14 years of age. Our highly trained multidisciplinary camp team includes three PTN occupational therapists with numerous years of camp experience who oversee programming, staff and volunteers. Occupational, physical or speech therapists consult with every group while all groups are staffed with paraprofessional educators and one-on-one teen volunteers who are the child's "buddy" throughout the week.
We are so thankful for our friends at Rolling Hills Country Day School who are wonderful hosts for our campers, families, volunteers and staff. Although our camps are separate, we integrate both camps for special events, which allows for a unique experience for our campers to interact with typically developing children.
Meet our Camp Coordinators
Karen Rodriguez, MS, OTR/L, Senior Coordinator of Campers and Staff|
Karen, a lifelong native of Torrance, decided to go back to school after raising her three children and teaching preschool for twelve years. She received her Master of Occupational Therapy degree from Cal State Dominguez Hills in 2009. Karen completed her required volunteer hours for OT school at Camp Escapades in 2006 as a one-to-one camper buddy. Little did she know that years later, she would not only work at Pediatric Therapy Network, but she would be the Senior Camp Coordinator and Coordinator of Campers for Camp Escapades! Working with children is her passion!
Emily Siren, MOT, OTR/L, Coordinator of Volunteers and Special Events
Emily received her Masters of Occupational Therapy degree from Tennessee State University in 2011. She is originally from Franklin, Tennessee and relocated to Southern California during her graduate fieldwork rotations, one of which was at PTN! She has been a group leader for the Ocean Blue Whales for four years and is excited to continue working specifically with the amazing volunteers at Camp Escapades. In addition to working as a school-based occupational therapist, Emily is passionate about working with OT graduate students and is the OT Fieldwork Coordinator at PTN.
