2016 Camps for Individuals with ASD

SUMMER CAMPS & RESOURCES

If you think that your child’s special needs will prevent him or her from participating in a summer camp, it’s time to think again.  Many camps offer specialized medical care for specific disabilities or one-on-one buddies, while other camps provide tutoring for individuals with learning disabilities in addition to outdoor activities.

If you know of a resource not listed, please contact us at asocmi@gmail.com so that we may share the latest information!
