Camps for ASD near you

Children benefit immensely from time outdoors interacting with other children and getting the full summer camp experience. Kids and leaders in the camp will be prepared to make the camp experience the best it can be, for them. You can find camps with ASD support in cities and regions across Canada, by clicking on the links below:

 

Options in autism support

Depending on what your family needs or wants, there are also multiple options within the broader category of autism support programs. After-school and other year-round programs foster sustained interaction for kids, and even among camps there are variations:

Camps for Autism

Overnight autism camps have a number of advantages. These camps also tend to be staffed by some of the better qualified and experienced professional assistants and support workers. Attending one of these camps can be an important step in the growth and independence of your autistic son or daughter.

ASD-support day camps are the right choice if you want to keep your child closer to home. Full day or even half day camps afford your child some interaction with other kids his or her age.

Girls only ASD-supportive camps give your daughter an environment where she’s surrounded by supportive peers, away from the distraction of boys.

Boys only ASD-support camps are the right choice if you want your son in an environment where he is encouraged to get adventurous, get his hands dirty and be "one of the guys."

Although a diganosis of Asperger's is now folded into ASD*, we still list camps for kids with Asperger's syndrome

A look at the benefits of attending camp, for kids with ASD

Any camp encourages youth to spend vacation time in a fruitful manner and improve social behaviour. Children benefit immensely from time outdoors interacting with others and getting the full summer camp experience. Children at autism supportive camps gain experience with a range of activities set up to accommodate their needs. 

The counselor-to-camper ratio is often a core aspect of these camps, providing ample attention for all exceptional needs children here. Hands-on activities, arts and crafts, team sports and many other activities are all healthy ways to subtly draw them out. Counselors at these camps will be trained in dealing with autism and its effects.

A number of camps offer an integrated approach that may include kids with no exceptional needs, as well as kids with developmental challenges other than ASD. And the point of all of these camps, of course, is to have a lot of fun together! 

Facing autism is a challenge but it need not be a restriction against fully engaging life outdoors, deepening learning as much as possible. There’s a vision inherent in these camps, one shared by families who send their kids and those who run the camps: it’s a belief that we can always do more to cross the gap caused by ASD. Consult with the camps listed on our site and find many success stories of how kids found new friends, beat new challenges and grew even incrementally in skills (including those you may have been discouraged from hoping to get help for) like social interaction, teamwork and more. 

Seeking out the right camp for your child

Parents are understandably deeply concerned about looking at camps that offer the very best support for children facing autism. There are several ways you can learn much more from the camps themselves

  • Open houses allow you to view camps for yourself, tour facilities, and see how campers and camp leaders interact. 
  • Our Kids’ Camp Expo happens every February in downtown Toronto. This is a unique, one-stop meeting ground with camps from across the country, all under one roof. Many camps that specialize in helping kids with exceptional needs are there, as well as those that support campers on the spectrum.

You can use our site to find a list of autism support schools. This page also looks at what to expect from these schools and how to choose the right one.

Our look at autism offers an overview of the disorder, its symptoms and how to parents can find the right school for their child.

Autism and special education looks in detail at how private schools offer exceptional help for families.
