For 19 years, the New Avenues Therapeutic Summer Camp in Lake County program has filled a significant gap in the learning, therapeutic and socialization continuum for five weeks each summer for 130 young people, ages 3 to 21. Summer Camp runs for 5 weeks during June and July.

The summer program helps to maintain and improve skills and support priority needs for each participant. Physical, occupational, speech, art, music, therapies specific to participants with autism, and other therapies are available in addition to recreational activities such as swimming and gym. A nurse is on the grounds at all times. 

The purpose of Summer Camp is to provide summer recreational and educational activities. Children with special needs benefit from staff who are trained to reinforce the goals of each participant.
