Camp FAQs, Answered:

When is camp?

Camp typically falls on the last week of July and first week of August. 2019 camp dates were July 29 - August 2 and August 5 - 9; 2020 camp dates will be shared in Spring 2020. Each camper is placed for one of the two weeks. Week placements are made based on your child's abilities, diagnoses, and information provided in the Registration packet.

Who can attend camp?

Children from age 5 (and entering kindergarten) to 21+ with an ASD diagnosis or related communication disorder may attend Camp WANNAGOAGAIN! summer camp. (Campers who have previously attended Camp may continue after the age of 21).

What group will my child be with?

Camp groups are determined according to children’s ages, abilities and diagnoses.

How much does camp cost?

$550.00, which includes a $75.00 non-refundable deposit. Tuition may be paid by personal check, VISA, MasterCard or checks/purchase orders from other funding sources.

Please Note: Katie Beckett (RI Medical Assistance) DOES NOT pay for camp.

Is financial assistance available?

Yes! Camperships are available and will be awarded on a sliding scale. Be sure to submit a Campership application and a copy of your W-2 for 2018, two paystubs, or other accepted proof of income with your child's camp application. All families are encouraged to apply.

Does your camp need any volunteers?
