Day camp available for teens with autism

This summer teens with autism can stay physically active and mentally engaged at Johnson County Autism Support Group’s day camp.

Registration is now open for Camp Can Do, which blends traditional camp activities with life skills in a fun learning environment. The program allows students to build skills needed to become an independent adult such as cooking, money management and using public transportation.

The program is divided into three one-week sessions: June 12-16, June 19-23 and June 26-30. Camp is held 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday at Whiteland Community High School.

Registration is $150 per session for Johnson County residents and $175 per session for residents outside of Johnson County. Campers attending all three sessions receive a $75 discount. In order to assure an appropriate ration of counselors to campers, register early. Registration is open on a first-come, first-serve basis with final payment due by May 15.
