The Help Group's Summer Camp

Sherman Oaks - United StatesAug-02-201609:00 am

The Help Group’s summer camp programs provide a safe and enriching atmosphere for children with autism spectrum disorder and other special needs. Led by highly-trained therapists and counselors, the programs create opportunities for children and teens to engage, experience and explore. Each of the Kids Like Me’s unique day camps strives to developmentally and chronologically match children across the spectrum to ensure an appropriate peer group for learning and fun. All the programs are developed by a multi-disciplinary team to address unique strengths and abilities, and are tailored to ensure the best possible camp experience for everyone. Children and teens will participate in daily camp activities such as field trips, art projects, sensory play, outside games, special events, animal-assisted activities, and much more.
