Kids On The Go

Traverse City

Kids On The Go is a Michigan based pediatric non-profit program designed to provide special needs children (3-17 years) with physical, occupational and speech therapy during the summer months. In 2019, Kids on the Go collaborated with local therapists and community members in Traverse City to create a new camp program in a great new location.

The mission of Kids On The Go….. is to recognize and facilitate the goals of children with special needs and to further develop their current skills through therapeutic and wellness programs for the children and their families.

Our vision….. is to provide a safe environment that will foster opportunities for growth, inclusion and provides valuable resources for our community.
