What is S.T.E.P.S. Camp?
STEPS Camp offers camps to elementary aged children, 5 to 10 years old who are diagnosed with High Functioning Autism, SCD, ADHD, and who exhibit maladaptive behavior patterns.
With experienced, understanding teachers and staff, we build a schedule and care team which is proactive and supportive of your child’s situation and specialized needs, and shape our summer camp to function successfully for them.
We do our utmost to ensure that children in our care are safe and well cared for.
The daily schedule is full of activities such as water play, obstacle courses, relays, petting zoo, wagon rides, tug-o-war, bounce houses and more. We keep the campers stimulated through fun and play while interacting with their peers.
There is an educational purpose to our camps and activities with a focus on teaching our campers coping skills when anxious and stressed, how to self-regulate, hygiene habits, social skills and providing a therapeutic milieu that supports learning through socialization. Along with this, each day the campers will learn a valuable character trait taught by a licensed therapists and/or certified Special Ed teacher.
2016 STEPS Camp will be conducted at two locations, the first at Rock Pointe Church July 18 -22 and then for the next two weeks in the heart of Liberty Hill, Texas, at the Elementary School Campus from July 25 – 29 & August 1 – 5. Drop off and pick up times are from 8:30am - 3:30pm daily.
The cost of the camp this year is $400.00 for the week. Please contact STEPS Camp regarding respite support and scholarship funding.
Because the nature of our camp requires a high staff to camper ratio, we have kept the camp small and only have 24 spots. If you are interested, we encourage you to contact us right away! You can access forms and pay fees online, or contact us directly.
We look forward to an awesome camp with your child!
