Camp Expedition is back at Camp Arroyo Grande!

Camp Expedition is back at Camp Arroyo Grande!  It is a beautiful area located just up the road from downtown AG.  We are excited to enjoy pool time, various camp activities, and some summer days together along with our awesome and energetic staff.  We hope your child will join us this year for a true outdoor camp experience. This is an amazing setting where your kid can be a kid! 

This year’s camp will include the following opportunities, plus so much more!

  • science experiments
  • nature trail hike
  • animal presentations
  • sports and games
  • drama and music
  • art
  • archery
  • gymnastics
  • sensory playroom
  • bounce house
  • waterslide


Camp Expedition provides a unique, fun, summer-day-camp experience for children, rich with social opportunities and with an emphasis on nurturing each child’s own gifts and talents.

Camp Expedition pledges to:

  • Provide the opportunity to simply “be a kid” for a week or two, without fear of judgment, and where every effort is met with praise and celebration.
  • Value each camper’s individual strengths, talents, and special interests. All campers learn to value each other and to respect the inherent gifts of every person.
  • Strengthen the social interactions of those on the autism spectrum through quality relationships and meaningful participation.
  • Strengthen the social interactions of those not on the autism spectrum through peer mentoring training and the nurturing of empathy and compassion.
  • Provide opportunities to bring together families who face challenges of autism and related developmental disorders.

Camp Goals: 

Camp Expedition promotes the creation of social and recreational programs designed to meet the unique needs of individuals with autism, while also meeting the needs of their typically developing peers, and integrating these in a fun, summer day camp environment. Many of the children served by Camp Expedition have never had a summer camp opportunity, and by serving families that are underserved either because of financial situations, or the quality and expertise of staff and volunteers that is necessary to meet their child’s needs (or both), Camp Expedition provides respite for the parents and an exciting opportunity for the kids.
