Explorers is a transition-to-adulthood program designed to give teens and young adults with autism and 22q deletion syndrome an opportunity to develop real-life skills in an environment where they can build community with people that understand their unique challenges. The program curriculum develops vocational skills, pre-vocational skills, and social skills in a interest-based and fun way, which leads to increased positive self-concept and self-efficacy.
We believe positive self-concept drives happiness and success.
There are two components of the Explorers Program
This is a vocational and skill building program for campers age 13 to mid-20s who struggle with self-organization, team communication, self-advocacy, and other adult skills. This program is designed to teach real-life skills in the fun and interesting environment of summer camp. Campers will enjoy all the fun of camp and walk away with a set of experiences geared toward their adult life and responsibilities.
Explorers During the School Year
This year we will be hosting several weekend day programs for the Explorers Program. We will be working on the same adulthood skills in the community and with business partners.
