Summer Day Camps​​

Thank you to everyone that supported our First Annual Waves Day Camps in 2019! It was a great success and we look forward to seeing all of our campers return next summer 2020!  

Welcome Wave Campers!

Waves' Creative Arts

Summer Day Camps

For Those with Autism in Elementary, Middle, and High School

Culinary, Woodworking, Games, & Arts and Crafts

We hope that you will join us this summer as we spend a week building friendships as we complete woodworking projects, create works of art, and make delicious culinary delights to share with one another! At the end of each camp session we will invite the camper's families to join us for a Friday Night Social to share what you have been working on at camp!
