Participation for the child with Autism, Asperger’s and Pervasive Developmental Disorders
At Camp Huntington, we believe that summer camp is a valuable experience for all children. Camping offers a great deal to children with Autism, Asperger’s, or other Pervasive Developmental Delays, who benefit from the positive structure of our program. Our individualized and structured activities allow campers to feel secure. Each activity is developed to assist children with communication and participation. Campers are introduced to new skills and activities, in a precise and consistent manner. Children are encouraged to participate positively with counselors and fellow campers. Appropriate interaction is rewarded with praise or a favorite activity.
