YMCA Empower Me Camp, Grades 4-8
With every new experience comes a change to learn and grow. The YMCA strives to give every child opportunities to test their own limits and explore their potential. Every summer, the Empower Me Camp is designed to build leadership skills, taking on new responsibilities and experiencing independence. In fact, all of our youth programs work to develop leaders and pave their way for the future.
The Empower Me Summer Camp provides youth with supervised activities from a supportive staff that will welcome your child in a warm, safe and caring environment. Camps for higher functioning youth on the Autism Spectrum are separated by grade level and will give each child an opportunity to learn, create and play. The Empower Me Camp lead staff are passionate about working with children with special needs. Our camp counselors consist of professionals or undergraduate students currently working toward degrees in teaching, psychology, social work, counseling or related fields.
The Empower Me Summer Camp activities offer your child an educational opportunity to begin developing skills that can help them learn essential social, physical and intellectual building blocks. Kids will participate in fun activities such as swimming, physical activities, arts and crafts and music. A trip to CHAPS (an equine-based experience) will highlight each week of camp. In addition, each camp will be going on their own special field trip.
All Empower Me Camps run Monday through Friday at Faith United Methodist Church in Neenah and utilizes the YMCA facilities in addition to the planned field trips.
