The Lillypads camp experience is for children and youth ages 9 to 13 who struggle in social spheres and need a little more attention than a traditional camp may offer. Campers with autism, generalized anxiety, ADHD or social anxiety are welcome. A diagnosis is not needed to attend.
Lillypads, which is not a medical/treatment/therapy-based camp, focuses on:
- Helping campers build friendships
- Nurturing social growth
- Enjoying traditional camp activities
Lillypads may be a good fit for campers who:
- Enjoy small groups and predictable environments
- Need support with homesickness
- Become uncomfortable with transitions and unexpected changes in schedule
- Are uneasy about trying new activities
- Are learning how to be part of a social group or need support learning how to be part of a social group
