Camp COAST for Summer Camp
Camp COAST (Children on the Autism Spectrum Together) is a summer day camp entering its 12th year at the Clearwater YMCA. It's specifically for children with autism and developmental disabilities that allow them to feel comfortable in a safe, fun and nurturing environment. Camp COAST is designed to meet the needs of children between the ages of 5-10 and 11-16 who are considered high functioning on the autism spectrum.
Camp COAST has a maximum of 20 children in camp each week. Each camper will have a teen intern assigned to him/her (ages 5-10). The teen intern supports the Camp COAST child in their daily activities and accompanies them on field trips. Daily activities include, but are not limited to: swimming, sensory games and various events designed for children on the autism spectrum or with developmental disabilities.
The camp attends weekly field trips to places all around the Tampa Bay area. A Pinellas County school bus will be used to transport all children to and from any activities that occur off YMCA property.
