Our mission is to provide a safe and secure environment for youth with autism and an opportunity to experience a residential summer camp.
Our vision is to provide an experience that enables campers to feel pride in learning new skills while being away from home. Campers will be with children their age, nine to fifteen year old youths (as of June 1, 2010), who share the same interests, skills, and wonderful gifts.
At Camp AweSum campers will learn new skills, gain confidence in being away from home, develop lifelong friendships, experience a summer camp without stress and anxiety, and be supported in all they attempt to do.
Camp facilities at Moon Beach include modern and clean cabins in a pristine Northwoods atmosphere. Meals are enjoyed in a family –like atmosphere of the Moon Beach dining hall. Camp AweSum is a typical camp experience with all the trimmings; arts & crafts, canoeing, hiking, swimming, fishing, campfires, and bog walks.
