Baker Summer Camp Grants 2012

May, 2012 - Autism Speaks has awarded $160,000 in scholarship funds to allow financially disadvantaged children and young adults with autism to attend camp this summer through the Autism Speaks Baker Summer Camp Program.

Grants were evaluated based on their overall camp program design and available activities, approach to serving people with Autism Spectrum Disorders, staff training in working with people with Autism Spectrum Disorders, and a documented and thoughtful process for selecting qualified scholarship campers. The Camps are responsible for choosing the scholarship recipients based on an autism diagnosis, financial need, and the individual's opportunity for growth and development through the camp experience.

Please note that funding for grant recipients is based upon information received at the time of the application. Before engaging with any provider, Autism Speaks urges you to do your own research and request references.
