Camp Encourage offers quality day and overnight camp opportunities involving relationship development, recreation, and relaxation for children with autism spectrum disorder, ages eight to eighteen. Additionally, year-round social opportunities or “Connections” are available for campers to continue to connect socially and gain important skills.
Sensory supports, visual strategies, direct social instruction, and positive behavioral supports are a few of the many important elements that make Camp Encourage unique. Traditional camp activities including ziplining, fishing, swimming, participating in art activities, and singing by the campfire are a few of the numerous activities available.
Camp Encourage provides an accepting, loving atmosphere and is well staffed with high quality, well-trained counselors, activity facilitators, medical personnel, and behavior specialists.
Overnight sessions of Camp Encourage occur at Tall Oaks Camp and Conference Center in Linwood, Kansas. Each CONNECTION outing occurs in various places across the greater Kansas City area.
