CAMP C.A.N.O.E. (CHILDREN WITH AUTISM NEED OUTDOOR EXPERIENCES) OPENS!
Pamela Ballard, Executive Director for Camp Fire USA Heart of Oklahoma Council, announced open registration for the first ever Camp C.A.N.O.E. (Children with Autism Need Outdoor Experiences.)
Open to children with autism, grades K-12, Camp C.A.N.O.E. is a summer day camp designed specifically for children with autism and other abilities.
Camp C.A.N.O.E. will be held at Camp DaKaNi, a beautiful 33-acre wooded campground in Oklahoma City, which has been owned and operated by Camp Fire USA Heart of Oklahoma Council for more than fifty years.
The mission of Camp Fire USA and Camp C.A.N.O.E. is to build caring, confident youth and future leaders. “Each day will be filled with a variety of outdoor activities to enhance the development of social, motor, and sensory processing skills--such as fishing, canoeing, rock-climbing, tackling the low-elements challenge course, enjoying the thrill of the zip line, and hiking our trails.” said Ballard.
Ballard continued, “The young people at Camp C.A.N.O.E. will be working together with their counselors in close-knit groups throughout the week to learn teamwork, build self-reliance, confidence, communication and social skills, problem solving, independent thinking, physical activity, and fine and gross motor skill development.”
Camp C.A.N.O.E. will be held July 23-27, Monday through Friday, from 9 a. m. to 3:30 p. m. with before and after care available for campers needing early arrival or later departure. Enrollment is limited to 50 campers.
Discounts are available for families with multiple children and some scholarships are available.
Remaining OKC area summer camps at variable prices depending upon age, pending openings, include: MaKaYa - July 5-7, Session 5 - July 9-13, and Session 6 - July 16-20.
