Summer Camps and Programs
Outreach autism Services Network is pleased to offer our 5th Annual Active Minds Summer Camp due to generous donations from our community. Our camp is for children with autism and their siblings and anyone in the community ages 3-18. Campers will have outside time, refresher academics, social skills classes & lots of fun activities.
OaSN has spoken to many summer camps and this is a list of camps that will work with individuals with autism. Please note, you will need to call each camp and see if it is a good fit for your child. We hope to have more camps to add in the future. If you know of any other camps or programs, please contact us.
For information on camps, please call camps directly:
