Camp Discovery Session 1
Camp Discovery is ideal for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder who will enjoy a summer camp experience with a high degree of structure and small group activities. Campers should be able to positively interact and safely participate within small groups, as this camp provides 1:4 support.
Camp Discovery is held at True Friends/Courage North, a beautiful 100-acre facility on Lake George near Bemidji, Minn. In 2021, campers will stay in cabin groups of four, according to age, gender, and interests. Cabins have restrooms and electricity. Campers will enjoy their meals in a dining hall or on an outdoor deck.
Camp activities include swimming, kayaking, canoeing, hiking in Itasca State Park, arts and crafts, nature experiences, recreational games, live action role-playing games, and more. Camp Discovery also includes special evening activities. Campers participate in small group discussions and activities that focus on special interests and making a connection with others. Adults with ASD work as mentors, providing empathetic, positive role modeling throughout the week.
Session 1 is open to all genders ages 10-16.
