Camp Concepts: Expressions at George School—Camp for kids with ASD
Day Camp
June 30-August 15, 2014
Ages 4-18, Co-ed
www.campconcepts.org

Expressions at George School is a summer day camp program designed for children ages 4-18 with High Functioning Autism (HFA), Asperger's Syndrome, Nonverbal Learning Disabilities and PDD-NOS. Expressions at George School is a special place where your child can safely enjoy a fun summer camp experience while improving and practicing his or her social skills through carefully selected interactions with typical peers.

Expressions provides a much needed program for the specific needs of its campers. In addition to a program full of age appropriate games and activities, Expressions incorporates activities designed to develop skills in the following areas: conversation, team-building, non-verbal communication, anger management, frustration tolerance, friendship making, problem solving, emotional development, and creativity.

Other activities include arts and crafts, music and dance, swimming, acting, computers, nature, team challenge activities (including activities on our low-ropes team challenge course) hiking, stream exploration, and more.

Expressions is a seven-week camp with the flexibility to choose your weeks. However, because Expressions is a program designed to teach and reinforce prosocial behaviors, we strongly recommend campers attend at least two consecutive weeks in order to provide greater consistency and reinforcement in learning, allow for a smooth transition period, and ultimately achieve the most positive results for each camper.

Each camper receives a free Expressions Camp t-shirt and daily lunch in the full service cafeteria. A registered nurse is on duty for the duration of the camp to administer medications and oversee camper’s health and safety.

NOW EXPRESSIONS GPS (Ages 15-18) Navigational life skills for preparation and development for greater independent living and coping skills. Includes optional overnight experience!
