All three sessions of Camp Hand in Hand are held at Camp Knutson north of Brainerd in Crosslake, Minnesota on a peninsula between Trout Lake and Lower Whitefish Lake. This serene camp location features beautiful woodland settings with modern air-conditioned cabins and bathrooms. All of Camp Knutson's facilities have been either newly renovated or recently built. Nutritious meals are served in a group dining room.

Activities include swimming, boating, tubing, horseback riding, fishing, crafts, archery, nature hikes, yoga and music therapy with a focus on social interaction and communication. The camp also offers a small ropes course, paddleboats and canoes for additional fun. There are special evening activities each night and a bonfire to enjoy. Each week of camp has 35 campers, divided into 6 groups determined by age, gender and interests. Campers are supported 1:1 by AuSM-trained camp counselors and each group is led by an experienced Program Staff. All programming is carefully planned to maintain a very well run, relaxed and rewarding camp experience.
