Questions about camp/respite?
The Flying Point Foundation for Autism offers several programs. Below please find information about each.
An inclusion summer camp in which children with autism, age 6 to 17, may learn social and communication skills alongside their typically developing peers. Trained staff will facilitate social opportunities among campers, who participate in activities including swimming, art, yoga, music and noncompetitive sports, in a structured yet information environment. Siblings and peers provide positive role models for campers with autism while learning the value of friendship. The 2013 session is August 21 to 30 at the Southampton Fresh Air Home.
Five respite sessions are offered throughout the year. In December and February, the session is all day, and the remainder are offered on Friday evenings.
