2016 Summer Day Camp Is Full!

Autism Delaware is happy to announce that its 2016 Summer Day Camp in partnership with the Children’s Beach House is full!  Thank you to all who registered for this amazing experience!  We expect that there will be tons of fun in the sun from August 22-25, 2016!

Purpose of the Camp:  The Autism Delaware Day Camp is designed to increase self-confidence, improve peer and social interactions in youth, and provide a traditional summer camp environment with supportive staff who understand the special needs of youth with ASD. Our goal is to help each child have a fun and successful summer camp experience through making new friends, exploring new interests, and making gains in independence.

The camp program is highly structured and filled with new adventures within a repeating schedule. Activities may include kayaking, sailing, swimming, low ropes course, arts and crafts, swimming in the pool, and more! Throughout each activity, emphasis is put on communication, social skills, and building self-esteem. We will use a “Challenge by Choice” approach throughout camp activities, meaning that we will encourage campers to stretch their limits in trying something new, but will never force them into an activity. Emotional and physical safety is always our priority.

Program staff will include teachers and paraprofessionals with special autism training and experience, Autism Delaware staff, Children’s Beach House Camp Counselors, and caring volunteers, allowing for a low staff to camper ratio.

Please feel free to ask questions you may have about summer day camp. You may contact Family Service Coordinator Dafne Carnright at 302-644-3410 or by email at dafne.carnright@delautism.org.
