Our mission is to encourage social growth, independence, and self-esteem in youth with autism spectrum disorder through a quality, overnight camp experience located in the greater Kansas City area. Our camps take place at Tall Oaks Conference Center in Linwood, KS. Each camp session includes both traditional camp activities and activities tailored around the individual campers’ interests. We are currently serving individuals on the autism spectrum that are: between the ages of 8 and 18 at the time of campo; at least fairly independent with self-care skills (showering, dressing, toileting); able to stay with or near the group (with accommodations and adaptations); able to tolerate the outdoors and all that nature brings (bugs, warmth, etc.); able to enjoy the activities on the schedule; successful with a 3:2 or 2:1 child:adult ratio and not presently exhibiting behavioral or functional needs that would warrant the constant support of 1:1 assistance. Through fundraising and grant writing efforts, we proudly offer scholarship support for each session. Scholarship opportunities range from partial to full. When a Camper Interest Form is submitted (to express interest in attending), a Scholarship Application is submitted as well. An in-depth scoring process is completed and funding is offered to each family according to the score received. Limited full scholarships are available. The more each family can raise or fund, the further our scholarship funding will stretch thus reaching more deserving campers with ASD. Please do not let the cost deter you from applying. We work diligently throughout the year to make this opportunity available to a variety of campers. A large number of our past campers have received partial or full scholarship support. In fact, all families that have expressed a need for financial support through the application process in past years were offered scholarship funding.
