A Slip ‘n Slide slick with shaving cream is one of many fun (and sometimes messy!) activities for the 14 children at Camp Hand to Hands at the MUSC College of Health Professions. Occupational and physical therapy students work with the campers, who all have a weakness on one side of their bodies. During the weeklong camp each August, 52 OT and PT students grow their skills as therapists while the campers grow stronger through play.
Similar therapy programs can cost families up $17,000. Camp Hand to Hands is completely free for these campers – thanks in large part to donations from MUSC employees.
