Autism summer camps set to begin in June

Staff report


The Autism Society of Mahoning Valley, in collaboration with ABA Therapy Solutions and the Youngstown YMCA, is offering summer day-camp options for children with special needs.

Three weeks of two styles of camp will be offered. They are June 18-22, Integrated Camp, age 6-13; July 30-Aug. 3, Full Camp Integrated Camp, age 3-22; and Aug. 13-17, Integrated Camp, age 6-13.

At Camp F.R.I.E.N.D. (Finding Rewards in Every New Day), the student-to-counselor ratio is low to better address the intense needs of children and teens on the autism spectrum, according to an ASMV news release.
