The Help Group is pleased to be able to offer in-person enrichment camps this summer for 6 to 18 year olds across the autism spectrum. Campers will be grouped according to their needs and peer-level and placed into one of three camp programs – Village Glen Camp, Camp Sunshine, or Teens on the Go. This intimate camp experience, located on our Sherman Oaks campus, will provide a fun, safe, and stimulating environment for all!
** Note that as of today, masks will need to be worn by all campers during indoor activities.
Village Glen Camp is a specialized social skills camp for autistic children and those with other social challenges ages 9 to 15 with mild support needs. Our campers are motivated to learn social, friendship, relaxation and coping skills, while having fun with peers who are like them! Village Glen Camp utilizes evidence-based and field-tested curriculum to promote social skills development, stress reduction, and allow for the formation of new friendships.
An exciting and well-rounded schedule of themed summer activities includes:
Campers will develop core strengths in: Social thinking, teamwork building; mindfulness; anxiety reduction; friendship skills.
