Camp SSTAR was created to provide children with Asperger syndrome and high functioning autism the opportunity to participate in a camp experience in a fun, structured, and nurturing environment. Individuals participate in camp activities such as hiking, fishing, art and photography, field day, and a variety of team building events. Camp SSTAR provides opportunities for individuals to engage in activities that focus on social skills, communication, team building, and leadership while promoting lasting friendships. Campers are assigned to groups that best meet their needs while exposing them to a peer group that enhances their experience. Each group attends camp for one week in the month of June.
