Village Glen Camp

Village Glen Camp is a specialized social skills camp for autistic children and those with other social challenges ages 9 to 15 with mild support needs. Our campers are motivated to learn social, friendship, relaxation and coping skills, while having fun with peers who are like them! Village Glen Camp utilizes evidence-based and field-tested curriculum to promote social skills development, stress reduction, and allow for the formation of new friendships.

An exciting and well-rounded schedule of themed summer activities includes:

  • Role/Play Drama
  • Outdoor Games
  • Creative Arts
  • STEM Activities
  • Field Trips (depending on COVID regulations at the time of camp)

Campers will develop core strengths in: Social thinking, teamwork building; mindfulness; anxiety reduction; friendship skills.

Campers will need to be interviewed to determine if our camp is a match for them. They must be able to function independently in a group setting, have conversational speech/communication and refrain from engaging in behaviors that may be harmful to themselves or others.
