Firefly Teen Camp (ages 14-16)

Camp Firefly provides unique life-enriching overnight camp experiences for children, teens and young adults, with Asperger’s Syndrome, Social Anxiety, Autism and other social disorders, needing more support in social situations to foster friendships and positive social interactions. Our low staff-to-camper ratios create positive summer experiences for campers, positioning them for success within a broader typical camp environment. Our overnight camps occur at JCC Camp Chi Overnight Camp in Lake Delton Wisconsin.

Teens, 14-16, can enjoy a summer camp experience designed especially for them. It combines the security of Camp Firefly Overnight Camp at Camp Chi with additional programs of specific interest to adolescents. The teen camp curriculum includes opportunities for mentoring younger campers, doing a service project and participating in a special teen-oriented field trip. Group activities are designed to build friendships and hone social skills while exploring issues specific to teens.
