Camp Tall Tree Summer Camps 2018 – Camp Tall Tree, held on the grounds of Camp Copneconic in Fenton, provides a traditional overnight summer camp experience for campers with autism, siblings and peers. Camp Tall Tree offers Main Camp (for kids on the autism spectrum), Siblings Camp (for their siblings), Peers Camp (who want to learn more about autism), and Explorers Camp (for older campers who wish to learn more about autism self-advocacy). All 4 camps take place from August 20-25, 2018 at beautiful YMCA Camp Copneconic!
Camp Tall Tree counselors are trained in anxiety-reducing strategies, visual support, structured choices, and compassionate meltdown support. Camp Tall Tree has 4 programs that occur at the same time, on the same camp, but in different areas of the property. All programs eat together in the dining hall and join together for some programming throughout the week.
Camp Tall Tree Summer Camps 2018
Main Camp – Camp Tall Tree Main Camp program is for campers age 7-14 on the autism spectrum. Camp activities include swimming, rock wall, zip line, horses, archery, art, sports, campfires and more! Camp Tall Tree counselors know how to adjust activities to accessible for kids who are anxious about trying to new things, have sensory sensitivities, different communication styles, short-term memory issues, or who need extra support around transitions. Cost – $1,250
Siblings – The siblings program is for campers 7-14 years old who have a sibling with special needs. Campers DO NOT need to have a sibling with autism or a sibling at Camp Tall Tree to attend this program. Siblings enjoy all the traditional camp activities described above, and they also participate in some programming specifically about being a sibling. Cost – $595
Peers – The Peers program is for neurotypical campers 12-15 years old who want to learn more about autism and be part of a neuro-diverse experience. Peers spend the first hour of the camp day learning about autism, and then spend part of the day in our main camp cabins. They help with our evening programs and debrief their day together in the evening. Peers sleep in their own cabin and have their own counselors. Cost – $595
Explorers – The Explorers program is for young adults age 13-26 years old. Explorers participate in workshops about cooking, organization, budgeting, self-advocacy and other pre-vocational skills for half the day, and do a lot of traditional camp activities in other half the day. This program is a wonderful blend of fun, responsibility, and rewarding independence. Cost – $1,250.
