Camp Cope-A-Lot is a 12-module online treatment program for use with children suffering from anxiety. The computer program provides cognitive behavioral therapy techniques (based on the Coping Cat treatment) for 7 to 13 year old children and teens struggling with anxiety and stress.

Child users advance on their own and at their own pace through the first 6 sessions, and through the last 6 sessions with coach (therapist or parent) guidance.

Along with other campers at Camp Cope-A-Lot, the child goes to an amusement park, puts on a talent show, meets someone new, speaks in public, sleeps in the dark, and experiences other adventures.

Ideal for use in multiple settings, including schools, community, private, hospital or training clinics, etc. Advantages include:

  • No formal training in cognitive-behavioral therapy required
  • Requires fewer therapists hours (approximately 6 hours per child for the 12 sessions)
  • Includes a selection of videos of other children engaging in exposure tasks and using coping strategies
  • Comes with printable Go-To-Gadget (child workbook)
