Does your high-functioning autistic child not qualify for a "special needs camp" but at the same time isn't quitttte ready to attend a "regular 'YMCA' camp"? Then our camp might just be the right fit! We specifically designed this camp to support the in-between stage for higher functioning ASD kids ages 4-10 who want to have a fun, social, summer experience, but need just a little extra understanding, patience, guidance and support from a team that "gets them". We want your kiddo to feel and experience summer fun like never before and we're here to make sure that happens!
“CampKidz Rock!” is the ultimate fun and exciting summer day camp experience for vocal children ages 4-10 with immature or delayed social and play skills, targeting the umbrella of Autism Spectrum Disorders, including, but not limited to: Asperger’s, High-Functioning Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and related play/social delays, including ADD/ADHD.To enhance each child's experience, a maximum number of 10 campers are registered per session.
