AutismUp Campers enjoyed a great summer experience last July and August at two local YMCA locations! We plan to continue our Social Skills Program for Children with Autism in collaboration with the Greater Rochester YMCA, the summer of 2017. Stay tuned for dates and information coming Spring of 2017!
This program is available to all children with ASD between the ages of 4 and 15. Specialized instruction makes it possible for the campers to be fully included in regular camp activities. AutismUp hires professionals who specialize in working with children with ASD and other disabilities to support our campers alongside the YMCA staff.
Eligibility Requirements for Camp Admission
All applicants must meet the following criteria:
All acceptances of application are conditional. AutismUp reserves the right to accept or deny applications or defer admission on site or prior to attendance should it later become aware that the initial application was flawed or upon demonstration that a camper does not meet the applicable eligibility criteria.
Campers who attend the full-day program, do not have AutismUp support during their lunch period. Please only register your child for full day camp if they can handle a half-hour lunch period without our extra support.
Campers are limited to 4 weeks of camp.
