Every year campers show the desire to work with staff during activities and within their groups. In response to this, we've developed a program for our teens.

Camp Leadership Training Program

We will run our Camp Leadership Training program again this year. It's been well received and we look forward to another great year. Our Camp Leadership Training program is for 6-8 campers, 3-4 each session.

Program Objectives

This program is designed to help teens develop leadership skills that will be useful throughout their lives. Identifying and achieving goals, improving communication and decision making skills, learning responsibility and helping others are some of the main objectives for the CLT Program.

CLT Campers will have a chance to shadow actual counselors, help facilitate activities, and participate in nearly every camp activity.

Who can apply to be a CLT Camper?

Teens age 14+ and entering high school with an Autism Spectrum Disorder or related communication disorder may apply to be a CLT Camper.

Will everyone be accepted into the program?

Each year we will host 6-8 campers in our CLT program. Applicants should be prepared that there is a chance more campers will apply for the program than space allows. We will do our best to place applicants into the traditional camp program if they are not chosen this year to participate in the CLT program.

What group will I work in?

Camp groups are determined according to the children's ages, abilities and diagnoses. We will place you in a group after the camp groups are decided.

How much does the CLT Program cost?

The tuition for CLT Campers is $475.00 per week. Tuition may be paid by personal check, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, or checks from other funding sources.

PLEASE NOTE: RI Medical Assitance (Katie Beckett or SSI) does NOT cover the cost of camp.

Financial Assistance

Camperships are available and will be awarded on a sliding scale.
