Northeastern State College Camping Program for the Mentally Retarded.
Northeastern State Univ., Tahlequah, OK.
Operating on the principle of meeting community needs and the desire to build a realistic practicum experience for special education majors, Northeastern State College began a special camping program for mentally retarded children. The program provides the special education student with the opportunity of direct experience in working with the mentally retarded child, the community, and the child's parents. The students have the responsibility of helping to plan the program each year. A written evaluation is submitted by each adult participant, providing continuous evaluation of the program. Financial support in money and equipment comes from the community. The camp's activities include swimming, arts and crafts, speech therapy, dancing, boating, softball, fishing, and self-help activities. (Author/JA)
