A List of Autism Summer Camps in 2011

When I first launched this site, I focused on autism schools and then branched off into autism summer camps. Although the site has grown in the past several years, I still maintain a list of autism schools by states and a small sampling of autism summer camps. This year, I’m going to do something different. I’m going to create a post dedicated to autism summer camps in 2011, much like my annual list of autism conferences.

I have uncovered the following summer camps for 2011 but of course, I am unable to find all of the camps that are out there. If you know of a camp that you’d like to see included in this list, please complete my form: Submit an Autism Summer Camp. As I discover new camps, I will update this post.
