4-H Camp Bristol Hills

All kids deserve a summer camp experience, and The Autism Center at Ontario ARC is excited to bring this opportunity back in 2015! Formed through a partnership between The Autism Center and 4-H Camp Bristol Hills, the Summer Day Camp opportunity offers a unique and fun summer activity for children with intellectual and other developmental disabilities, including autism.

The Summer Day Camp gives children with unique needs an opportunity to create lasting memories and build new friendships within a supportive environment. Campers will improve their social, communication and physical skills and will have access to fun and educational activities including archery, beading, cooking, arts & crafts, fishing, geocaching, swimming, rocketry and woodworking. Trained staff from Ontario ARC, including a special education teacher, provide on-site support to campers.

Each session runs for one week. Camp hours are Monday – Thursday, 9 – 4 PM and Friday 9 – 12 PM. Transportation is available Monday through Thursday and on Friday AM from the Cornell Cooperative Extension in Canandaigua. The bus will depart at 8:15 AM and return at 4:45 PM. Parents/Guardians are responsible for Friday PM transportation.
