Autism Youth Camp is for ages:
13 years old – adult and is for any individual with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). We will be matching each camper with a buddy who will be their friend through camp. The buddies are volunteers in the community that want to make a difference. The buddies will get training ahead of time and be matched up with a camper.
The Autism Youth Camp will meet once a week for 2 hours with one on one activities with their buddy, group activities, music and story ministry.
There will be a sensory room set up if at any time they feel overwhelmed. Their buddy will hang out with them in the sensory room until they are ready to come back to join the activities.
No. You don't have to belong to the church to join. This is a community outreach program that Surf City Church is creating for all.
We will be sharing God's love and teaching the youth to love one another.
If you would like to volunteer, please email Lee Selby at: email@example.com
We require to meet 4 times before camp starts for 2 hour each training, before we match a camper to their buddy. Each buddy will have to commit to a total of 16 hours of volunteer time (for the Season they are volunteering for) for the 8 weeks (Tuesday's at 3:30pm-5:30pm). 4 Tuesday's are training and 4 Tuesday's are camp. Please see Buddy Training Schedule under Camp Schedule.
The camp costs $40 per camper per season (Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring). We have a very limited number of spaces available. This helps partially cover the cost of the backpack, t-shirt, water bottle, sensory box, and materials that each camper will receive.
We would love that!!
