Camp WANNAGOAGAIN!

The purpose of camp is to provide a safe, supported and fun camp experience for children, teens, and young adults with ASD and related social-emotional or communication challenges. We wanted our camp name to reflect this goal! Each year families and campers ask to come back for the second week of camp, or they ask why camp can't be all summer. Our sadness on the last day, knowing it’s a full year before we can come again, was the inspiration for the name Camp WANNAGOAGAIN! We promise to pack each week with supported, fun camp activities and memory-makers so we are all saying, "I wanna go again to Camp WANNAGOAGAIN!"

Camp Location

Camp is located at the Boy Scouts of America Buck Hill Scout Reservation - a wooded, rustic campsite with a lake, themed buildings and areas (ships and a castle), and a swimming pool.

Camp Program

The CampWANNAGOAGAIN! program is designed to provide opportunities for real-life experiences, an environment to learn new leisure skills, and the chance to meet new friends in a structured environment with experienced staff.

Camp provides the following supports for its campers across activities:

  • Visual supports that enhance comprehension and prediction of expectations
  • Low camper-to-counselor ratio
  • 1:1 support when necessary
  • Trained, highly skilled staff
  • Sensory-based activities that enhance a camper’s ability to take advantage of language and communication opportunities
  • Structured teaching methods
  • Relaxation techniques that enhance self-regulation
  • Daily living routines incorporated into camp activities as appropriate
  • Staff and program content that supports play skills, social skills and participation in group activities
  • Camp facilities (such as the pool and nature trails) that offer gross motor activities, which satisfy sensory needs and encourage communication
  • Traditional camp activities like swimming, arts and crafts, and nature walks
