Glade Run Adventures Specialized Adventures Camp


Who is this camp for?
The Specialized Adventures Summer Camp is a two-week social skills development day camp, specially designed for children with moderate to high functioning autism spectrum disorders. However, any child ages 8 to 18 years in need of social skills development is considered. 


What will my camper be doing?
Adventures summer campers have access to Glade Run’s scenic 319-acre campus, which includes several gardens and greenhouses, an indoor and outdoor horseback riding arena, therapeutic patio areas, miles of trails and stream exploration, an outdoor classroom amphitheater, indoor kitchen and activity rooms, and gross sensory and motor rooms. Throughout each week, campers can participate in activities such as horseback riding, cooking, gardening, swimming, and crafting while learning new social skills and accomplishing individualized goals. Activities are designed for improving self-esteem, reducing anxiety, improving concentration, managing emotions and behavior and learning group work to accomplish tasks.
