Camp AweSum has two types of camps, one for youths only and one for families who have a child with an ASD. Both camps are held at the same site, Moon Beach Camp, which is located at beautiful Moon Lake, in the majestic Northwoods near St. Germain, Wisconsin.
Camp facilities at Moon Beach include modern and clean cabins in a pristine Northwoods environment. Meals are enjoyed in a family –like atmosphere at the spacious Moon Beach dining hall. Camp AweSum is a typical camp experience with all the trimmings; arts & crafts, canoeing/kayaking/sailing, hiking, swimming, fishing, campfires, bog walks, and the less typical events like Karaoke, Variety Show and Dance night.
Our vision is to provide an experience that enables campers to feel pride in learning new skills while being away from home. Campers will be with children their age, who share similar interests, skills, and wonderful gifts. Campers will learn new skills, gain confidence in being away from home, develop lifelong friendships, experience a summer camp without stress and anxiety, and be supported in all they attempt to do. Self-esteem will soar, and friendships will burgeon at Camp AweSum!
Family camp is an opportunity to vacation with other families who “understand your story.” The age and functioning level of the person on the Autism Spectrum is irrelevant for this camp. This is an extraordinary opportunity for families to relax and rejuvenate in an idyllic Northwoods setting while enjoying the understanding and support provided by other families and by an organization and staff that embrace differences. You’ll have opportunities to share tales and laugh about things only families such as yours could know and appreciate!
The staff of Camp AweSum will work to support the campers to enjoy camp to the best of their ability. Self-esteem will soar at Camp AweSum!
Come join the fun!
