Camp Wonderland is a summer arts camp tailored specifically to the unique interests and needs of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder between the ages of 7-21. The program is led by a team of artists, administrators, special education teachers, and an Autism Disorder Specialist dedicated to creating a safe, welcoming and comfortable environment for children affected by autism. The camp will offer an enriching theater experience through music, movement, art, and drama, that encourages self-expression, social-engagement, creative exploration, and above all, fun! This year, we are honored to be sponsored by the Augusta Developmental Specialists. We believe that children should have the opportunity to experience live theater and performance. It is important to us to give these kids an outlet of expression on their terms, allowing them to explore their gifts, meet friends, and ultimately, have a great time! 

Young people ages 7-21 who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder are invited to join the fun.
