We welcome campers ages 5 and up on the autism spectrum, including classic autism, PDD-NOS, Asperger’s Syndrome, and related diagnoses. We believe participants of any athletic ability can succeed, and we pride ourselves on ensuring that our campers achieve success in our activities while having lots of fun!
To ensure success and safety ESC has a greater than 1:1 counselor to camper ratio. Our staff receives extensive training in autism learning styles, and many have prior experience with working with kids and adults on the autism spectrum. We believe in using only positive behavioral and communication supports, and we apply teaching theories that have proven effective with autism to our sports activities. Many of our staff members also have expertise and certification in the sports we undertake.
Note: Families are required to deliver their camper to our location in the Roaring Fork Valley. If you require transportation, please refer to the option listed below.
What We Believe (Core Values)
Sports programs can be accessible, enjoyable and achievable for an individual with autism.
Sports are an integral component of human life and everyone should be given the opportunity to participate. Through sports, people with autism can more fully engage in everyday life.
Every individual with autism has the right to attempt and attain athletics and has the right to be taught in the way they learn and succeed.
Using innovative methods that are designed with the person with autism in mind, our participants can be successful at challenging athletic activities.
Our participants develop a sense of teamwork, camaraderie, community and belonging. Personal growth and independence can emerge.
Our approach can foster the long-term incorporation of recreational sports into daily life. The personal gain of each participant can increase the health, happiness and sustained well being for the entire family.
Throughout its programs, Extreme Sports Camp is committed to taking into account up-to-date research findings in the field of autism.
Extreme Sports Camp was incorporated in 2004 and operates as a non-profit 501c3 organization, EIN # 20-0940000.
OUR KIDS AND FAMILIES DEPEND ON YOUR GENEROSITY TO MAKE ESC RUN.
Extreme Sports Camp has helped to build confidence in my child like no one I have ever seen.
