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.

All 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.
