BARC Autism Summer Camp
The Baylor Autism Resource Clinic (BARC) Autism Summer Camp is offered annually to provide a fun and engaging experience for children with autism in a very supportive environment. Camp Groups will be organized by age and number of students in each group. Each group will be led by at least two Baylor Educational Psychology graduate students for campus fun!
These students have extensive training and education in working with children with ASD which helps provide a secure environment for all of the campers. This year’s activities include: Cameron Park Zoo, outside games, snack time, water play, bowling, scavenger hunts, visiting the Mayborn Museum, bowling, and arts & crafts!
We aim to keep the camp cost affordable for our families so historically the cost of each camper for 5 days has been $75.
NEED: The total cost for the BARC Autism Summer Camp about $7,000, which is about $275 per camper. The camp fee of even $75 is difficulty or prohibitive for many families whose children benefit from the camp. As a result, BARC Autism Summer Camp runs on about a $5,500 deficit each year so fundraising and donations are greatly needed to keep the event running. Funds from this campaign will be used to pay for (1) entry fees for activities, such as Cameron Park Zoo, Mayborn Museum, or bowling, (2) supplies for arts & craft activities, and (3) payment for trained staff to ensure safety of the campers.
