Giving Young Autism Athletes Their Own Camp Experience
Extreme Sports Camp is an individualized outdoor sports program in the Aspen-Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado for youth and young adults across the autism spectrum. We use positive, autism-friendly/autism-engineered approaches that inspire fun and athletic accomplishment. Our camper/counselor ratio exceeds 1:1. Sessions run weekly in June, July and August as well as December-April.
We are dedicated to the advocacy of daily exercise and the sense of empowerment extreme sports provides to our youth and young adults with autism. Our goal is to provide the highest quality programs for anyone,anywhere on the autism spectrum. Part of our vision is to turn the Aspen/Roaring Fork Valley area into the center for promoting the value and importance of exercise/extreme sports in coping with autism.
