THE STORY:

Hello family and friends! Since we moved to Rochester 10 years ago, AutismUp has provided countless positive experiences for Xenia and Justin. One of the highlights has been a summer camp program which enables our kids to integrate into YMCA summer camp with typical peers. Xenia has been a part of this summer camp since it's inception, and this year it is the highlight of Justin's summer! Until I had my own kids with autism, I took life experiences like summer camp for granted. If you have met my kids, you understand that I can't simply send them off to camp...they rely on experts in the field of autism to help them succeed. This is where AutismUp comes in, providing special education teachers and highly trained camp counselors to enable kids like Xenia and Justin to experience a childhood rite of passage that we all take for granted: go to camp, make a friend or two, and have some fun. Understandably this level of support costs.... lots of money! So that families can afford these vital experiences, AutismUp fundraises the bulk of the operation costs. Basically if families had to front the entire cost, camp would not be possible. None of the AutismUp programs would be a reality for families without generous donors. This is where you come in. Please support AutismUp. Summer camp may seem like a frivolity, but children with autism depend on structure 12 months out of the year. Summer is also the ideal time to focus on social skills, as during the school year teachers are preoccupied with academics. See, there are so many great reasons why you should support AutismUp! The past 10 years would have been a lonely road without AutismUp. I'm excited to see what new programs they come up with in the future as my daughter enters adulthood. Thank you so much for your consideration. ~Elizabeth Franklin

In eastern IA my son enjoys Camp Courageous, but we need more capacity for adults, not every one can get in who would like the experience each yr, but we are enjoying the respite weekends available. Glad to hear they have a good camp in NY as well. 3 years ago
