Looking for a safe and nurturing environment that allows children with Aspergers syndrome to experience fun and unforgettable summer memories? Our Aspergers camp California is your top choice!
Why We are the Aspergers Camp California Families Choose
You can find many camps online offering the same experience, but Talisman is different than other camps in many ways. We take into consideration the needs of the campers and the needs of the parents as well.
Our unique camp environment is designed for children from age 10 to 20. Our program is broken up according to age. One of our top goals for campers is to pull them out of their shell and help them to become more social. Being social at camp translates into more confidence and a stronger sense of self once they return home.
Our programs can help children with Aspergers syndrome to:
- Develop and increase independence
- Build self-confidence
- Discover motivation and support
- Enhance communication and social skills
- Build friendships with other campers(These last way longer than just the summer!)
When it comes to you, the parent, we take your needs into consideration as well as your child. It is really challenging for a parent to be away from their child for weeks on end, especially if this is their first time away from home. Our staff is available to answer questions not only in the weeks leading up to camp, but we are here all summer long to answer your questions and update you on your child. We can update you regularly via phone and share updates about the child’s experience at our camp online, once a week we send e-mails to the parents where we include information about the activities and events we organize, and the campers are encouraged at least once a week to write a letter to their parents and share their experience. All summer long we take photos that are added to a secure online photo gallery you can view everyday!
Your child will be in excellent hands, here at the leading Aspergers camp California families trust. You can rest assured knowing that your child is having the best summer possible!
