Talisman Camps & Programs - North Carolina, also WA, OR, NY
Talisman Camps & Programs now offer year-round programs. Their many summer camp programs cater to youth, ages 9-17, with issues such as attention deficit disorder and learning disabilities, Asperger’s Syndrome, and high-functioning autism who would excel in a residential program that focuses on establishing positive routines and provides diverse daily activities. Our activities provide a fun environment in which campers can develop self-esteem, trust in self and others, and the basics of good decision-making. All activities are designed in a “build-up” situation. Through a group process we focus on how an individual’s actions affect the group as a whole. Programs are designed with each individual child’s special needs in mind. All programs include most of the following activities: high ropes course, rock climbing, tubing, white water rafting, tree climbing, hiking, backpacking, swimming. We believe that the skills learned during our programming will later transfer to home, school, and in other social settings.
Throughout the year, Talisman offers a powerful semester-long academic program for teen’s with Asperger’s syndrome.
Our outdoor education programs, also known as wilderness therapy, are a great option for families with teens who might not succeed in traditional summer camps. Please visit our outdoor education / wilderness programs page to learn about these summer options.
