Camp Red Kite is a summer arts camp tailored specifically to the unique interests and needs of children on the autism spectrum.
The program is led by a team of artists, administrators, and special education teachers dedicated to creating a safe, welcoming, and comfortable environment for children affected by autism. Our aim is to foster a shared arts experience that encourages self expression, social engagement, creative exploration, and above all, FUN!
Over a three-week period, children at Camp Red Kite will participate in Music & Movement, Theatre & Drama Games, and Arts & Crafts classes. The CRK curriculum taps into strategies to ensure a high comfort level for all campers, including a consistent, highly-structured schedule that is displayed pictorially in each room. The experienced staff gives personal attention to each camper, shaping the camp experience so that each child can engage in his or her own way and feel successful. The program will culminate in a final showcase to share the Camp Red Kite experience with family and friends.
