*** Not offered in 2017! ***
We are preparing for our expansion to High School, and apologize for the inconvenience!
Our 4 week summer camp program combines the fun of typical summer day camp activities with the benefits of evidence-based social skill instruction and supports. Each week we will have a different theme to allow children to focus and learn about a topic, while also expanding their interests and abilities. There will be age-appropriate activities planned for each theme in the areas of art, dance, music, drama, science, recreation/games, social skills, and community.
This year we are excited to add field trips to our list of summer camp fun! Each week, kids will visit a community attraction related to the theme of the week. Parent/caregiver transportation and supervision may be required.
Children with autism will be able to:
- Learn and improve social, communication, leisure, and recreational skills
- Make friends
- Explore and expand their individual strengths and interests
- Feel happy, accepted, and anxiety-free
