Part of the camp involves your child participating in a research study. The research study requires minimal participation, the majority of the day is devoted to fun crafts and interactive game activities. During the study, your child will be asked to play a series of fun computer games, word games, puzzles, etc. Your child will be given the option to participate and he or she can chose to withdraw from the study at any time. Parents will receive a summary of the results once the study is finished so you can benefit from the information we have learned. Parents/ caregivers will be required to submit the required consent forms and questionnaires before the camp starts
