Camp 2 Can Brevard - Summer 2015
Camp 2CAN-Brevard is a summer camp dedicated to the provision of creativity, socialization, and personal-growth experiences by individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).
Camp TWO-CAN-Brevard will be held for four weeks next summer for individuals with ASD ranging in age from 5-22 years of age in the Brevard County area.
Camp TWO-CAN-Brevard will provide campers with natural environments to help build friendships, learn and use social skills, explore nature, make arts and crafts, participate in swimming/sports/games, and use various functional skills, all while having fun! Small groups of children and youth will be supervised by adults who are experienced in working with individuals with ASD.
This program was developed by the UCF Center for Autism & Related Disabilities (CARD) in response to the limited options and high demand for appropriate summer programs where children with ASD can interact safely and productively in Brevard County. Funding for the camp is partially subsidized through Brevard Providing Autism Links and Supports (PALS), which is a non-profit group dedicated to supporting families in the Brevard County area and hosted by The Scott Center for Autism Treatment at FIT.
Campers with ASD must be registered with the UCF Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (CARD) to participate in the camp experience. The maximum number of openings for campers is 21 participants per week.
