    Overview

    Altitude provides year-round camping experiences for boys and girls with social cognitive challenges including: verbal and nonverbal learning disabilities, ADHD, Asperger’s, and high functioning autism.

    We build social skills, independence, and self-confidence to prepare our participants for the transition to young adulthood, future relationships, and the rest of their lives.

    Prerequisites: In order to be successful at camp, an Altitude camper will be able to:

    • Function within a ratio of 3 campers to 1 counselor in a group setting
    • Exhibit language at a conversational level – though they may need some help initiating conversations, staying on topic, listening to others, switching topics, maintaining or ending conversations in a good way
    • Complete daily living skills independently – however, at time they may require some prompts or reminders
