The Help Group Offers Innovative Summer Day Camps for Children With Autism, Asperger's and Other Special Needs.

Camp Discovery and "Kids Like Me" camps at The Help Group enhance social skill development through recreational activities for kids 3-18

The Help Group is pleased to announce its Camp Discovery and Kids Like Me summer day camps, which provide a fun and exciting recreational camp experience for children with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities.

Designed to encourage social and emotional growth, our camps are led by highly trained and professional staff who ensure campers will learn, make friends and have a great time!

Camp Discovery is an outdoor day camp for kids ages 3 to 14 with mild to moderate special needs that has a 1:3 staff/child ratio.

Psychotherapists, along with speech, occupational and music therapists consult with counselors to develop goals and interventions that enable campers to enjoy daily routines and activities in a language-rich and socially supportive setting.

Small groups of campers engage in a developmentally appropriate and exciting program that includes music, arts & crafts, nature activities, games, sports, theme days and more.
