Social Skill Camps
For kids with autism spectrum disorders, there are limited summer camp opportunities available. Anne Carlsen Center is rooted in the belief that all people, regardless of disability, should have the chance to live life to its fullest. Social Skills Camp supports and enhances the campers’ use of socialization to allow them to participate fully in the summer camp experience.
Social Skills Camp curriculum provides kids the opportunity to learn and further develop skills that are integral to social developmental – including play, language, and adaptive skills. Mixed in with functional learning are fun activities focused on specific themes. Field trips will provide the opportunity for interaction and turn-taking. Trained and dedicated camp counselors, along with skilled ACC staff, provide assistance to meet campers’ needs.
