Connect with Art summer camp helps children with autism express themselves through art. In conjunction with Hattie Larlham Creative Arts, children with autism explore different art media like painting, pottery and musical expression. This summer camp encourages children on the autism spectrum or children with sensory processing issues to explore their environment through a week of fun with art.
Each Connect with Art summer camper can try out different art media and then return to the one they enjoy the most. Art projects created at Connect with Art summer camp will be available to take home two weeks after the camp is over.
When Connect with Art summer camp attendees are not in art sessions, they will get to take part in summer camp activities. Connect with Art summer camp includes outdoor play time at the sensory playground, water play, bike riding and activity stations.
Connect with Art summer camp attendees will get to swim in the indoor heated swimming pool. Staff encourages summer campers to feel comfortable and independent in the water or use floating devices as needed. The camper-to-staff ratio leads to a safe and secure environment.
Hattie Larlham asks that children attending summer camp bring a lunch, change of clothes and swimsuit each day. Summer campers must be signed in and out by a parent, guardian or designated adult.
Hattie Larlham requires summer camp attendees complete and return a registration form (PDF). Hattie Larlham staff encourages parents to bring interested campers in for a tour and interview.
The cost to attend Connect with Art summer camp is $200 per camp week. Daily rates are available.
