Kidstar Summer Camp for Children with Autism

Ages 13-17: Check back for 2015 dates


Ages 8-12: Check back for 2015 dates


Kidstar Summer Day Camp is an activities-based summer program designed to help those with high functioning Autism. Campers ranging in age from eight to seventeen, will learn social skills that will help build their self esteem.  Kidstar's unique approach allows those with autism to learn directly from their typically developing peer mentors.  Throughout the camp, each camper with autism will be paired with a "buddy" camper that will model proper behavior and provide an example of appropriate social interaction.  This will enable each camper to make numerous friends and reach out to others with the safety of a "buddy." 

The Kidstar Day Camp is held Monday - Thursday, 9 am - 4 pm at the Neuropsychiatric Institute.

Please note that space is limited. Applications are considered on a first come first serve basis.
