Talisman Camps: Summer Camps for Kids with Aspergers, Autism and ADHD

Discovery is a kids Autism, ADHD, and Aspergers camp designed for children ages 6 and 7 years old who may have ASD, ADHD, learning disabilities, or social anxiety. During Session 4, in just 7 days, campers sample many of our popular on-campus activities. The Discovery program model emphasizes both consistency and compassion, as campers build foundational skills in social communication and conflict resolution within a developmentally appropriate peer group. This growth takes place in a safe and fun small group environment where campers can become excited about the activities they try, the friends they make, and the potential they begin to recognize in themselves. This is a great introduction to camp for younger children.

ARE YOU READY FOR AN AMAZING SUMMER?? Talisman Summer Camp is here to help! We provide specialized camp experiences for young people ages 6 to 22 with autism spectrum disorders, ADHD and/or other learning differences. Since 1980, our ACA-accredited ADHD, autism and Aspergers summer camp programs have been delivering unique alternatives to ordinary summer camps. Our progressive adventure programs help our campers build success while increasing social skills, a sense of personal responsibility, confidence, and a more positive self-image.

What makes our camp so unique and successful? We have over four decades of experience providing remarkable summers, employing highly trained and caring staff, and planning out phenomenal activities for our young campers. A typical day may include enjoying a wholesome home-cooked breakfast, engaging in peer group activities, completing a nature walk in the beautiful North Carolina mountains, jumping off an inflatable into the camp lake, kayaking down gorgeous local rivers, having a conversation with a peer who understands your world, laughing with friends around a campfire, pitching in to clean up after evening meal, feeling pride when my bunkmates and I win a camp contest, or enjoying some of the most restful sleep after a long day of activities in the fresh mountain air.

Can’t wait? We’d love to chat with you and your family to determine if Talisman Programs and our Aspergers and ADHD Summer Camp would be a good fit for your next summer adventure!
