Summer camp for autistic children with their peersFor Children With Autism and Their Peers

Ages: 8-12

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 twelve and 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.”
