This summer, children with autism can attend a summer camp designed for them.
The Johnson County Autism Support Group’s day camp, Camp Can Do, will be offered in two sessions this summer.
Camp Can Do offers a four-week day camp for kids ages 10 to 18, which is divided into two sessions. Session 1 will be June 16 through 26, and Session 2 will be July 6 through 17.
The program allows students to build skills they’ll need to become independent adults, such as shopping, cooking, money management and using public transportation.
Camper days are filled with activities from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays at Whiteland Community High School’s Ninth-Grade Center.
The fee is $275 per session for Johnson County residents and $300 for non-residents. Campers attending both sessions receive a $100 discount. Deadline for registrations is June 1.
