Camp Wonder

Camp Wonder is an AMAZING summer camp experience for children with autism spectrum disorders and special needs.  Your camper will have a blast making new friends, going new places, and playing and creating all summer long.

Your camper will be nurtured and supported by trained ABA therapists (BCBAs and RBTs) who individualize instruction to help each camper improve his or her ability to make and keep friends, develop more self-confidence, and behave more appropriately in the community.

Low Staff to Camper Ratios

Camp Wonder offers 1:2 / 1:3 staff to camper ratios, pending ability level of the group.  All groups are lead by trained Applied Behavior Analysis therapists (Registered Behavior Technicians) and supervised by a team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts.

Lessons Emphasize Social Skills

Many kids with autism or developmental disabilities need extra supports with imaginative play, cooperative play, and communicating with peers.  All Camp Wonder lessons are individualized to meet the individual campers’ needs, and designed to promote social communicate and play.

Community Outings

Each week, campers practice their skills learned at Camp Wonder out in the community.  Previous community trips have included water parks, trampoline parks, boat rides to barrier islands, restaurants, and movies.  In addition to going out, we bring the fun in to camp as well! Video game busses, therapy dogs, yoga teachers, superheroes, dentists, and food trucks are just a sampling of the fun every day at camp!
