We are excited to announce the 9th summer of our Social Skills Program for Children with Autism in collaboration with the Greater Rochester YMCA, which will take place July 6 – August 14, 2015. 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.
Parents are asked to select 3 goals they want their child to work on during the social skills program. In addition, they could provide 1-2 individual goals that are not tracked, but are focused on throughout the day.
Camp scholarships are available through the YMCA Invest in Youth Campaign, and AutismUp’s Richard and Nancy Dorschel Family Foundation Scholarship Program. Please complete the YMCA Request Form and send along with the AutismUp camper application.
