I can’t really believe that the year has gone by this fast, but apparently everyone was right, and adulthood, or, in my case, “adulthood”, is flying by. This is third year that Dragonfly Forest will have an overnight camp for kids with autism! It seems like it was just yesterday that I was agonizing over the details of the program design, and explaining why the schedule had to be both rigid and flexible at the same time.
Anyway, enough reminiscing.The application for Autism Camp at Dragonfly Forest is officially open for 2010!
This year, campers can apply for an overnight session or a day camp session (see the website for session dates). We hire adults (18 plus) with autism to work as counselors or program staff, and we have a counselor-in-training program for teens on the spectrum.
I think I’ve said this before, but camp is the most fun I’ve ever had. Come check us out and see why I’m as excited as a cat in a mouse store!
