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.
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.
