New 2013 Autism Summer Camps Added

I’ve just added three new autism summer camps to my directory. If you know of a 2013 autism summer camp in your area, please send me the information so that I can get it added to the list. Thanks! ~ Melissa ~

Summer Camp with High Hopes – Elberta, Alabama
Summer Camp with High Hopes is a social camp for children on the Autism Spectrum and their peers ages 5 – 10.

Camp Callahan – Quincy, Illinois
Camp Callahan, Incorporated, now in its 54th year of service to people with disabilities, offers a program that provides an exciting, safe, summer camp experience. Camp Callahan Inc., their volunteers, and the facilities of the Mississippi Valley Council of Boy Scouts of America, will combine to make this unique program a success. Camp Callahan is dedicated to serving youth with wide-ranging disabilities through a stimulating, liberating program in an environment that is physically and socially adapted to the personal needs of these very special campers. The camp has the specialized environment, equipment, activities, accessible buildings, and a trained adult staff to overcome the barriers that a person with disabilities would encounter at ordinary summer camps.

Camp HHC (Helping Hands Center for Special Needs) – Columbus, Ohio
CAMP HHC will take place Mondays – Thursdays, June 17 through August 8, 2013 from 8:45 am – 3:15 pm.

Summer CAMP at HHC is a great way to extend the important learning done throughout the school year in a fun and engaging camp format. Many exciting activities are planned and each group participates in a unique blend of fun-themed related activities. There is a focus on continued academic development blended with socialization, play skills and making friends. Small group Music Therapy is included in the cost and will be scheduled during camp hours as will other regular therapies as the schedule permits.

Helping Hands Center has a limited number of placements available for summer only students in our Pre-School, Kindergarten and School-Age classrooms. We will not enroll students for summer only in our Early Intervention classroom.
