Funding Sources, Leaders and Volunteers Are Always Needed for Summer Experiences
Summer programs are ways for individuals with autism to explore an interest or just be a kid. In the summer of 2014, AutismOklahoma offered 7 camps that served 84 individuals with autism. This is more campers and summer programs than we have ever had in our history!
Every year we add more summer experiences for everyone to enjoy, but there is always more demand than we can serve. If you are interested in your child participating in a camp, here are a few things you can do to get involved.
- Participate in a local support group or on the PieceWalk committee
- Complete a family survey and let us know what your child is interested in
- Get to know other families and find common interests
- Volunteer to work on the summer camp team or to lead a group. We need you to offer more great summer experiences!
It just takes 5-6 to create a great summer experience and we are here to provide guidance and support.
In 2014, AutismOklahoma provided the following summer experiences:
- Good Shepherd School – “Little Swanky”
- Camp Noggin
- Big Swanky Art Camp/Show
- Star Wars Camp
- Dr. Who Camp
- Lego Camp
- Girls with Voices Swim Camp
