Autism Delaware’s one-week, Monday to Thursday day camp is a highly structured program for youth with ASD emphasizing building new peer relationships, exploring new activities and making gains in independence. Thirty campers, ranging from rising third graders to 17-year-olds, will have the opportunity to participate in activities including kayaking, sailing, swimming at the beach and in the pool, a low ropes course and arts and crafts. The camp uses a “Challenge by Choice” approach that encourages campers to try new things, but never forces them into an activity. The program staff consists of Autism Delaware staff and Children’s Beach House Camp Counselors, as well as teachers, paraprofessionals and therapists with autism training and experience. To be considered for a spot, complete and submit the Summer Beach Camp application packet by May 19.
