Camp Kaleidoscope in Starksboro, Vermont

Here, families with children on the autism spectrum can relax and play in an emotionally and physically safe environment. Located on a 700-acre former farm in northern Vermont, the camp is staffed by an autism-aware team that includes speech language pathologists and occupational therapists. In addition, each family is assigned their own helper, usually a graduate SLP student. Each morning, kids are busy with universally accessible activities, while grownups can relax, dabble in arts classes or take in an autism education session. You will stay in private cabins or an eco-lodge, with private bathrooms and electricity. Meals are mostly vegetarian, with exceptions to accommodate dietary challenges (there are also gluten- and casein- free choices at every meal). The camp has many kid-friendly options, and most meals and snacks are made from local and organic ingredients. For kids ages 3 to 11 on the autism spectrum and their families. June 28–July 1. $250–$500 per person, on a sliding scale.
