One of the campers continuously has verbal outbursts and says how much they hate you, they hate the class, and they hate all the other kids. No one wants to play with him and often he is playing by himself during an activity, swimming or on field trips. When he is engaged in a activity he seems to enjoy them very much.
During the gym activities, you notice that a camper likes to squeeze himself into a corner and rub his body back and forth against the wall. Eventually, Sam, one of the camp counselors comes over and after several attempts, he is able to get his to participate in the activity for a couple of minutes.
It is time to get ready to go home. Each day this particular preschooler throws off his shoes and destroys the contents of his back pack. It is a physical struggle to get him out of the room everyday.
Kite flying was cancelled for the day due to stormy weather. The camper refused to participate in any other activities, yelling that he was going to fly the kite. As the afternoon progressed, he remained non compliant refusing to participate in any activity by going to sit by himself and pouting. The camper tried several times to leave the building and had to be physically stopped.
