Camps and Recreation

At the Kinney Center, we believe that children learn best when lessons feel less like work and more like fun! Recreational programs like Camp Kinney utilize movement, teambuilding and games to facilitate progress toward social skill goals.

Camp Kinney

Your child can enjoy a traditional day camp experience while continuing the progress they achieved during the school year. Campers with autism participate in arts and crafts, science experiments, swimming, and visits from special guests alongside their neurotypical peers.

Sports and Recreation

Give your child the opportunity to learn a new sport or skill in an inclusive and accepting atmosphere. From basketball to swimming, yoga and more, recreation programs facilitate self-confidence and a sense of belonging through exercise and team building.

This is one of the few places in both of my boy’s lives where their differences are celebrated, and they’re not seen as deficits."
