What is CommuniCamp™?

Our 3+ Day CommuniCamp™ is an Intensive Group Treatment and Parent Training & Support Program to help parents, children, and teens (ages 3-17+) overcome Selective Mutism, social anxiety, and extreme shyness. 

All are welcome! There is no restriction based on a child/teen’s social communication level.

We will help your child/teen build the social communication skills necessary for school, the real world, and at home implementing the SMart Center’s 20+ years of experience treating Selective Mutism using Social Communication Anxiety Treatment® (S-CAT®), the evidence-based treatment approach created by world-renowned Selective Mutism expert, Dr. Elisa Shipon-Blum 

CommuniCamp is an excellent supplemental treatment to those already receivingor plan to receiveindividualized care. 


The CommuniCamp™ Mission is two-fold:

1) Intensive Group Treatment in Small Peer Groups

Over the course of a four-day weekend (Fri – Mon, almost 20 hours total) our professionally trained counselors and lead clinicians will work directly with campers to instill social confidenceincrease communication, and facilitate the learning of coping skills. 

Our peer groups are strategically small (camper-to-counselor ratio is about 2:1). Not only are our counselors trained in S-CAT® but also in their campers’ individual needs. (Learn more about this process here.) 

We carefully craft therapeutic games, activities, exercises, and strategies for each camper’s age (more information on our teen program here) and individual baseline Stage® of social communication. Through these strategies, by respecting their baseline stages of communication (Social Communication Bridge) and respecting each camper’s unique needs, our campers progress across the Bridge in a strategic way where they can see and hear themselves communicating confidently in a group school setting. This then translates to their daily lives when they get home as parents, educators and others facilitate strategies to keep progress going (Value of parent education and school training) 

2) Parent Education, Training, and Support
