Camping Themed Lesson Plan Activities For Teletherapy

The best part about using a camping theme in speech therapy is– let's be real– the absence of bugs. Wait, I mean the huge amount of flexibility to target speech and language goals. And that you can use the theme for weeks. Or maybe it's the fact that kids LOVE to talk about camping.


Either way, there are so many great digital activities for the theme of camping. Whether you're looking for something to engage squirmy preschoolers or motivate teenagers, you'll be a happy camper! This list of activities will save you time rummaging through your files (and the internet) by giving you a mountain of ideas... all just a click away!


Boom Cards

One word. S'MORES. Do your students go nuts at even the thought of melted marshmallows and chocolate like mine do? So much vocabulary can be addressed with this topic though, so I'm here for it too!

This Boom Card deck brings s'mores to life in teletherapy by making the treat digitally, then sequencing and retelling the steps. A quick and easy way to target so many goals!


PDF Activities

This camping-themed interactive PDF targets vocabulary, answering wh- questions, formulating sentences, pronouns, and articulation, all within one file!

It's perfect for not only teletherapy, but also any PDF reader app on an iPad. Download, and you're done!


If you're on my e-mail list, don't forget about this activity in the FREEBIE LIBRARY! The one-page camping scene has articulation and language prompts right on the page.... plus a printable version for homework or face-to-face therapy!
