Camp Blue Skies provides 5-day, 4-night overnight camps for adults with developmental disabilities, including Down syndrome and mild to moderate Autism. In addition to the many recreational and outdoor activities available to our campers, we offer learning activities to address individual independence. Campers have opportunities to challenge themselves in a safe environment to enhance their interests and abilities while developing their social skills.
