Once the school year is over, many families with children on the autism spectrum are looking for ways to engage their children in meaningful activity.  Even if your child qualifies for an ESY program, those traditional programs are limited in length and unlikely to include fun activities.  This summer, set your child on their long-term skill development pathway with a taste of recreational activities that will empower them to feel confident about themselves while having fun.

Your child may be an excellent candidate for our “End of Summer Camp,” which can help him or her with crucial developmental and social skills. Our campers will engage with new peers while participating in a variety of recreational (athletic and enrichment) activities, and camp will offer everything from socialization programming and basic arts and crafts along with indoor and outdoor recreational activities.

Our camp is wonderful place for kids and teens with special needs, to provide them with an environment that fosters their accomplishments, friendships, and a great time with memories of an exceptional summer.

This program is a collaboration between the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Indoor Sports Arena (PISA) to provide continued activity to those who might need ongoing programs.  The primary goals of the program include:

• Promote self-awareness and interaction through structured sports and enrichment games
• Develop and maintain recreation and leisure skills
• Develop social skills and behavioral skills and interactions
• Provide athletics and arts through movement and appropriate activities
• Promote physical fitness among youth and young adults
