A weekend to relax, refresh, and connect.
Coming Soon! 2024 Dates & Registration!
Join CAMP – Caregivers of Autism Maximizing Potential – a restorative weekend retreat designed for those who love and guide individuals on the Autism spectrum, inspired by ‘Uniquely Human‘ author, Dr. Barry Prizant’s ‘Reflecting on the Journey‘.
CAMP is intended for anyone whose life has been touched by Autism. Whether you are a mom, dad, foster parent, grandma, teacher, or friend… CAMP is an inclusive and safe space for conversation and connecting.
What You Can Expect
Meet other caregivers from all over the state, who have walked a similar path and faced similar challenges. Join us as we laugh and learn together. During three guided discussions we will share our triumphs and tears, from the past year.
Listen and share ideas with other caregivers of individuals on the autism spectrum. We’ll work through three guided discussion sessions that you choose based on your current season of life. Each is designed to help leverage the experience and perspective of others to navigate your own day-to-day.
Our discussion and activity-based workshop is designed to help you reconnect with your partner, with yourself, and with your Autism journey.
Restorative Self Care
Time by the lake, a bike ride into town, an invigorating hike… or simply an uninterrupted afternoon nap. We’ve built in plenty of free time for you to reconnect with your partner and with yourself.
