ADULTS WITH AUTISM
This is a program to offer fun, summer activities for young adults, ages 18 and older, on the autism spectrum. Some individuals, as they enter adulthood, still need the assistance and support of others to be able to participate in many community activities. The purpose of AWARE is to provide autistic adults a day camp experience that will allow them to socialize with their peers and enjoy various community- based activities. Many individuals have participated in Camp I CAN when they were younger. This is an opportunity for similar, fun experiences for adults.
There will be a maximum of 12 participants enrolled. Staffing will be one camp leader for every 2 participants. The staff for this program are individuals who have prior experience working with persons with autism.
The participant must be safe and able to navigate in various community settings at a 1 staff: 2 participant ratio***.
***There are a limited number of spots for participants requiring one-on-one support. We will do our best to accommodate individuals needing this level of support.
