Every day at Spectrum Day Camp is focused on positively influencing others. Our summer camp experience strives to make a difference in the lives of everyone: campers, families, volunteers, experienced staff and our local community.
Our approach to the summer camp experience is anchored by our core social skills curriculum, which outlines the skills, that campers are exposed to each and every day.
The purpose of Spectrum Day Camp extends far beyond simply having FUN. Fun is just one of the many intended results of intentional camp programing.
Everything we do at Spectrum Day Camp is intentional, and guided by our core philosophy and mission. From how activities are facilitated, to how we communicate with campers, to how staff members interact with one another – it all has a purpose.
We train our volunteers and staff how to teach, communicate and think within the intentional camp framework. Staff members are educational and medical professionals who understand and have been trained in the characteristics of and research based strategies used for persons affected by Autism/Asperger’s. Our camp staff is skilled in creating a structured and supportive environment that fosters the positive social and life skills of each camper who attends day camp.
Spectrum Camp and Clubs' intentional approach to the summer camp experience provides children with a real-world, real-life experiential program that promotes the development of social and life skills.
