PT Students Hold Kids’ Sports Festival

SportsDay054.jpgBelmont Physical Therapy students developed and implemented a Sports Festival for children with disabilities recently. Students worked with Michelle Hill of Empower Me Day Camp to put on an afternoon of fun games and sporting activities for school-age children. Empower Me Day Camp provides summer day camps for children with disabilities, as well as, social and recreational activities throughout the school year. The Physical Therapy students planned several fun activities that each had a specific therapeutic purpose. Activities included obstacle courses, parachute games, face painting and crafts, sensory-based activities and other childhood games adapted for children with disabilities.
