Building Bridges Camp is designed to give individuals who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) and Assistive Technology (AT) an opportunity to develop their communication skills in a fun, motivating, no-pressure environment. Each year, 40 campers ages 5-17 years, attend a week-long overnight camping experience. Divided into four groups according to age, campers participate in activities designed to support the development of their AAC and AT skills. Building Bridges Camp is a great opportunity for kids to develop increased independence and skills in a fun, motivating, no-pressure environment. Throughout the week, campers will have opportunities to participate in:

  • swimming
  • horseback riding
  • arts & crafts
  • evening skits
  • campfires

The camp program is designed to pair adults attending the Training Institute with a camper throughout the week. We encourage campers to bring a trainer with them to the Training Institute, however, it is not a requirement for attending the camp. If a camper does not have an adult attending with them, someone will be assigned as their partner.
