Camp Connect is a week-long summer day camp designed for children with social skills difficulties caused by high-functioning autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit disorders, sensory processing disorders, and related differences. Camp Connect is led by an occupational therapist and occupational therapy students. Through small group and community activities, Camp Connect kids learn appropriate social skills and gain the confidence to use them. Camp activities are geared towards personal growth and learning to work as a team. They also teach problem-solving, real-world dynamic thinking, and adaptive skills.
