SUMMER CAMP PROGRAM

Respite Recreation ProgramNSSA established a week-long summer day camp program to help provide additional structure and recreation opportunities for children with autism at the close of summer school sessions, a time when it is typically not available. In addition to developing sports and leisure skills, the camp benefits children with autism by giving them opportunities for social and community integration. The camp program also helps to lessen the burden placed upon their families during a particularly challenging period of time each year.
