Outdoors for All Foundation will expand the number and quality of outdoor recreation experiences for children and adults living with ASD and their friends and family members. Key measurable objectives of the program will include: to serve 50 additional individuals with disabilities in our year round adaptive recreation programs; increase training hours for all staff and volunteers on issues of autism; design and establish a week-long adventure camp for teens with high functioning autism – benefiting at least ten participants; and obtain and implement sensory regulation equipment into the programs, as well as the design and creation of an Autism Tool Kit which will help staff and volunteers in the field ensure that participants with ASD will have a fun, safe and enriching outdoor recreation experience.
