Camp Gateway is more than a camp for children with special needs. It’s an avenue to develop new friendships and achieve personal goals in a supportive setting. We offer multiple sessions throughout the year, where campers enjoy traditional camp activities, like arts and crafts, cooking, sports, and community outings. Campers are also provided with unique opportunities to practice individualized social, communication, and daily living skills in a structured, supportive environment.
A camp you can trust
Gateway staff are established experts in behavioral therapy for children with autism, and their expertise has been poured into every aspect of Camp Gateway. All counselors are Registered Behavior Technicians, trained in the science of breaking down skills into small components and reinforcing new skill acquisition every step of the way. Our talented staff guide children through a camp experience that is designed around each camper’s individual needs and interests.
Parents and other caregivers receive daily communication updates about their child’s day, including access to photos, activity logs, and skills practiced. We also provide suggestions for how you can incorporate themes from camp into home activities.
Siblings and special helpers welcome
Camp Gateway welcomes siblings and offers a unique opportunity for compassionate kids to connect with others who share similar life experiences.
We also welcome special helpers or caregivers who are intimately involved in a child’s daily living.
