Each year, we respond to the needs for quality camps from our families who have children and adolescents with disabilities. Growth and development look like child’s play at Easterseals Crossroads. Each of our specialty camps has been designed to promote and maintain learning skills so that a child does not lose ability between school years.

We recognize traditional camps are not always an option for children on the autism spectrum. Camp ROCKS is an outdoor camp specifically designed for young people with autism who are 10–17 years old. Campers enjoy a 5-night/6-day outdoor camp experience. Age-appropriate activities allow campers the opportunity to enjoy an outdoor camping experience in a fun, nurturing environment. Activities include science exploration, swimming, nature hikes, horseback riding, canoeing and much more!

Camp ROCKS typically takes place just southwest of Indianapolis in Martinsville, Indiana, at Bradford Woods. All activities are led by a team of professionals trained to work with individuals on the autism spectrum. Meals are provided.

Camp ROCKS will take place from June 12 – June 17 this year.
