Rainbow Tree Therapies was established in 2013. We are so grateful for all the children and families who have found their way to us! Thank you for all of the continued support!
Rainbow Tree Therapies is therapeutic enrichment for kids ages 3 to 12. Rainbow Tree Therapies was developed by Occupational Therapist, Lisa Haverly, whose intention is to honor the unique spirit of each child’s development using the outdoors and nature as the natural premise for growth and development. This holistic approach supports the child’s mind, body and spirit using an experiential and developmental learning model including a multi-sensory approach to learning and growing. Rainbow Tree Therapies is excited to offer therapeutically enriched camp opportunities for kids Spring, Summer, and Fall! The outdoors provides an expansive opportunity for children to breathe fresh air, engage in imaginative and creative sensory rich play, find meaning while exploring and connecting to nature, develop motor coordination skills and functional speech and language skills. Rainbow Tree Therapies also fosters a deeper appreciation and connection to the earth and all the living things which inhabit it. Nature provides a stress free environment where kids can express themselves freely and connect with themselves and the world around them.
