Camp Connect is a summer day camp program for children with autism ages 5-12. The camp theme is A Minecraft Adventure at Camp Connect! The purpose of Camp Connect is for children with autism to have fun while connecting with other children who may or may not have autism. Each child with autism will be paired with a peer mentor (with similar interests and age) and a behavior technician student to maximize success. The number of campers will be limited to 10 children with autism and 10 children without autism each week, so please apply early. Each camper with autism will leave camp with an overview of performance and a support plan for extending the activities into the home or school setting. Please complete the attached application (linked at the bottom of this post) and return it by June 1st, 2015.
Camp Connect is sponsored by the University of Arkansas Autism/Applied Behavior Analysis Programs, and Project Connect. Camp is provided at no cost to families.
