Camp Nugget provides small group instruction by university students enrolled in the KIN Department who are studying to receive an Adapted Physical Education Teaching Credential under the supervision of Dr. Barry Lavay, CSULB Professor. Camp activities include aquatics with swim instruction, fundamental motor skills, health-related physical fitness, dance, lead-up cooperative games, and adapted sports. The 4-week program begins usually the last Monday in June and continues throughout the first three weeks of July.

Camp Nugget is designed for children with special needs and disabilities ages 5 - 12 years. The child/staff ratio is four children to one staff member. It is the parent’s responsibility to provide assistance with their child if their child requires intense one-on-one instruction This also includes the swimming portion of camp.
For example if their child: (a) will run away from the group (b) has such a severe disability that he/she requires full-time physical assistance, including hand over on hand assistance at all times.
(1-1 Support Handout) A parent meeting will be held on the first day of camp and the parents are strongly encouraged to attend.
