This program will be offered to children from 6 to 10 years old and is available by scholarship through MAXimum Chances and/or Johnson & Johnson scholarships.

Our summer camp program is based on the principles of ABA therapy in a group setting and concentrates on social interactions with both peers and adults; play skills; communication skills; and proper behavior in the community.
We include both swimming and horseback riding as activities for summer camp; because we feel that they are important, beneficial activities for children.
Public outings include trips to the library and local parks in Keller. Our therapy center is located blocks away from the Keller Sports Complex, and we have access to playing fields and a playground at the park (which has different play equipment than our playground at the center).
Peer interaction is very important socially for children with autism, so we include neuro-typical pre-teens to act as mentors; play with our clients; and assist us in therapy sessions. This has had a significant impact improving our clients' social skills and has helped us keep the pace of our sessions brisk.
We include all of the activities that we do year round during summer camp and try to participate more in outdoor activities; equine activities and naturalistic learning (teaching in the environment in which we use the skill being taught).
Being active is very important when children are in a learning environment; so we create as many activity-based learning scenarios for our clients as possible and utilize our expansive property as much as possible.
For more information about summer camp, please contact us as early as possible as spaces are limited.
