Overnight summer camp is an experience that many children get to have. The ability to travel to the mountains, swim in a lake, and do fun activities, all with a group of like-minded peers, is an unbeatable experience. However, just like many children with autism struggle in regular schools, they may struggle at overnight camp. That’s why there are several camps specifically designed for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). At these autism overnight summer camps, children are able to explore, have fun, and try new things under the supervision of staff members with training and relevant experience.

With the amount of autism overnight summer camps in the country, how do you know which camp to choose for your child? While there are several helpful criteria you should look for, there is no denying Talisman Camps is one of the best autism overnight summer camps around.

Talisman Camps is one of the best autism overnight summer camps in the entire country, based on both ranking and camper experience.

The camp was created specifically for children with ASD, as well as those with ADHD. Talisman Camps has programs for children as young as six years old! Our summer programs are unique from other autism camps for several reasons. First, if you want to ensure that your child engages primarily with other children with autism, you can opt for one of our programs specifically for children with autism. We split programs by developmental abilities, which is why we offer separate camps for children with autism, Aspergers, and ADHD. Children travel from states all over the country to attend our autism overnight summer camps. Hopefully, your child will be one of them!

If you want your child to attend one of the best autism overnight summer camps, but they’re going for the first time, here are a few things that they should expect:

● Support: At Talisman, all of our staff members (including camp counselors)are highly trained in working with children with autism, Aspergers, and ADHD. Your child never needs to worry about feeling alone at camp. Our staff is committed to going above and beyond to ensure that all of our campers are happy and comfortable.

● Fun activities: While Talisman programs are designed to challenge campers, instill teamwork, and help them grow emotionally, they are (most importantly) fun! We offer a wide range of activities from sports and swimming to mountain climbing.

●Friendship: Every year, Talisman campers leave having made several friendships. It’s easy to make friends at Talisman programs because children can identify with one another. Campers get to spend several weeks together learning new things and sharing life experiences!

If no autism overnight summer camps are in your home state, don’t worry! Many children travel from all around the country, as well as overseas, to attend the autism overnight summer camps on this list. Camps like Camp Akeela and Talisman Camps are well-known both nationally and internationally as some of the best autism overnight summer camps in the world! If you want your child to have an amazing camp experience, give us a call to discuss our summer 2019 programs or others across the nation.
