Camping and leisure activities are important for all of us, including individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This webinar will begin to identify the benefits of having children with ASD and their peers in an inclusive camp setting. We will explore how a camper with ASD might think and introduce a practical peer program called “PAWSS” to support the social interactions at camp. Strengths and challenges of serving campers with ASD will be problem solved and myths will be discarded.

Through this webinar, participants will learn:

  1. Have an increased understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
  2. Be introduced to the “PAWSS” Peer Program to support social interaction at camp.
  3. Name three simple ways to support individuals with ASD at camp.
  4. State two benefits that campers and staff will experience by including people with ASD into camp.
