REGISTRATION PROCESS: 

  1. Register: Registration will open May 20th.

  3. Review Camp Guidelines:  One week prior to the camp date, you will receive the camp guidelines, schedule/activities for the session, and other important details.

 

REQUIREMENTS:

We will do everything possible to welcome and accommodate all campers, but we do not currently have the resources to provide one-on-one services for self-injurious, aggressive or inappropriate behaviors that are severe and may put other campers at risk.  All new campers will attend an informal meet and greet at our resource center so that we have the opportunity to get to know the families, and see if our camp is a good fit.  If we determine we do not have the necessary resources, we will try to provide referrals to other services in our area that can accommodate his or her specific needs.

 

For additional information, email us at info@all4autism.org or call 843-472-5215.

 

  Space is limited, so please register only if your camper can attend all 12 classes.  Please let us know if you need to cancel ASAP so that we can offer the spot to someone on our waitlist. Thanks!
