Summer Day Camps
Our Mission: to enrich and enhance the physical, emotional, social development of children, teenagers and young adults with Autism/Asperger’s within a safe, warm, caring and stimulating camp community.
Camp can be a summertime oasis, providing a safe environment for children to relax, play and learn without the pressures they have during the school year. Camp creates a temporary community each summer in which campers participate in all kinds of activities with a staff of positive role models who continually monitor the “friendship making” process. Our Day Camps strives to teach children important life skills, including communication and social skills like the art of making and keeping friends. These skills will help them in childhood, adulthood, the workplace and beyond.
We now offer programs in Gwinnett County and Roswell .
