- Program Overview
At Talisman Programs, we offer a wide variety of boys’ and girls’ ADHD and autism camps for all ages and many interests. We recognize the significant developmental differences between an 8-year-old and an 18-year-old. Although they will cross paths in the dining hall and all-camp campfires, campers will do most activities with their own age group.
Within the younger programs (Discovery, Sight and Foundations), campers are grouped by developmental level in their cabins. This ensures that staff members approach them with developmentally-appropriate teaching methods, and that campers can more easily make friends. Girls and boys may share a group, but will sleep in different cabins.
Teen and Young Adult programs stress appreciation of differences, respect, cooperation, and increased personal responsibility. Some of our programs (Insight and Young Adult) are specifically for campers on the autism spectrum and others (Teen Adventure and Krewe) include those with ADHD or other needs. All programs offer developmentally-appropriate activities and challenges.

For over 40 years Talisman Camps have helped teens and young adults on the spectrum experience an inclusive transitional summer camp environment. We would love to speak with you and help you reserve a spot for this summer.
