|Camp Inspire Day Camp is a co-ed, four week day program
designed between the ages 4 to 20 diagnosed with Autism. The
program is intended to maximize a child's potential and develop
his/her strengths and hidden abilities. This specialized camp
offers a very unique program of recreation activities, academic
and social integration. Children enjoy the fun-filled days of a
four week summer day camp while learning practical life skills.
activities are instructional in nature and administered by a
professional specialized staff. All of the activities are designed to
stimulate the children’s awareness and interest while building upon
positive relationships with others.
It is our belief that your child with Autism will build
upon their camp experience and develop a greater appreciation for
recreational activities, along with developing social and academic
skills. Camp will provide for a safe, nurturing and dynamic learning
environment that incorporates fun, fit and fundamentals of learning.
Camp will help to improve cognitive, affective and psychomotor
development through social skills and group interaction. Being
surrounded by individuals with similar needs along with their non
disabled peers will foster friendships, self-esteem and confidence,
promoting personal growth and independence.
A staff ratio of one
camp instructor to every four campers will be provided. Every effort
will be made to provide one-on-one staffing for campers who need closer
supervision. We also have peer tutor and volunteers that will be
assisting us through-out camp.
