Summer L.I.F.E

  • Summer L.I.F.E.

    Experiential Learning and Social Skills Development in the Context of Summer Fun

    Designed especially to support students, ages 8–21, with high functioning autism and Asperger’s Syndrome, the programs – specialty camps, traditional day and overnight camp, and travel excursions – also support students who have social anxiety or difficulty connecting with their peers. Summer L.I.F.E. offers low camper-to-staff ratio, experienced camp staff, ongoing behavior support, structured daily programming, engaging, multisensory activities and real-world learning.

    Summer L.I.F.E. is based on The Three “E”s:

    • Experiencing hands on activities engages campers at a personal level by recognizing and addressing their unique needs, wants and interests. Experiential learning allows campers to retain skills for longer periods of time.
    • Empowering campers to be more independent in safe, supportive environments allows them to self-advocate and practice critical daily living skills.
    • Encouraging healthy relationships allows campers to practice social skills within the context of small group, age-appropriate recreational activities.
