Every Summer for over 40 years Talisman Camps has been the top choice for Spectrum Teens and Young Adults.

Joining us this year for your first summer will bring confidence to your child and an experience that will have a positive impact on your family for years to come. We may be a legacy camp, but our methods and techniques are innovative and proven. For decades we have helped to make our campers feel included in everything we do and a part of every aspect of a memorable summer.
