The Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM) has developed camps specifically for children with autism. Parents can rest assured knowing that their campers are being cared for by highly trained, experienced staff, while campers make memories that will last a lifetime. AuSM camps are available for young people ages 6-25 who are AuSM members. Camp offerings include a day camp where campers arrive each morning and leave each afternoon and two residential camps where campers stay several days and nights.

campboywebTo be eligible for camp registration, you must be a current member of AuSM. AuSM reserves the right to place campers in the camp that is best matched with the camper's needs. If there is not space available in the appropriate camp, the camper will be placed on the wait list for an opening. If no opening is available, the deposit will be refunded. If you have a question about which camp best suits your camper, please contact the camp office at 651.647.1083 ext. 16.


The registration deadline is Feb. 28 or until all camper slots are filled. Camp slots are filled on a first-come basis. Save money and secure your camp slot in 2014 by registering on or before March 31, 2014!
