2011 Blue Compass Camp Programs for Kids with Asperger’s Syndrome

I came across a gem of a website when researching 2011 autism summer camps today – Blue Compass Camps. According to the company’s website:

Blue Compass is a summer camp based out of Seattle, Washington for kids and teens ages 7-18 with Asperger’s, High-Functioning Autism, and ADHD who can benefit from outdoor adventures focused on building social and self confidence.

Registration is open for the 2011 Blue Compass summer camps. The following programs are on this year’s schedule:

  • NW Expedition – Backpacking, sailing, sea kayaking and whitewater rafting – 15 day camp for children ages 13-18 – $3875 tuition
  • Sea Kayaking – Sea kayaking in the San Juan Islands – 7 day camp for children ages 13-18 – $1685 tuition
  • 7-Day Backpacking and Whitewater Rafting - 7 day camp for children ages 13-18 – $1685 tuition
  • 2-Day Backpacking for children ages 13-18 – $350 tuition
  • Treasure Island – 3 day Treasure hunt and camping for children 10-12 – $525 tuition
  • Farm Camp – Working & playing on a farm and camping for children ages 13-18 – 5 day camp is $875
  • The Lemonade Company – Day Camp Activities including swimming, arts & crafts and playing at the beach – children ages 7-9 – $525 for a 5 day session

There are multiple dates available for most of the camps and scholarships are available. Please visit the Blue Compass Camps website or call 866-683-6262 for more information.

My Aspie is an outdoors lover (as long as there are no bees around!) and I wish he were ready to go to a camp like this. He’s not there yet but maybe in a few years.

  1. Thanks for the compliment and promotion for our camps, Melissa! I am the Admissions Director at Blue Compass Camps and also a parent of a child on the spectrum. Last year we had waiting lists for all of our programs before summer started so this year we are offering more camps. Hopefully when you’re son is ready you will look us up again! If anyone else is interested in learning more they can call us at 1-866-683-6262. We have scholarships too!
