Adaptive art. Respite. & Therapeutic play. Services - A.R.T.S. - Camp
is run by Cindy Best, a pediatric physical therapist turned ceramic artist. She is assisted by Carol MacDonald, a retired teacher and "Snack & Story Lady Extraordinaire".
Other health care professionals and artists are
subcontracted to assist, and junior & senior apprentices serve as both mentors to the children & camp assistants. Older campers are created paid summer
employment positions. Summer camps are ideally designed for children & teens with special needs ages 4 to 17 years old. Exceptions are considered.
At A.R.T.S., we offer a caring and comfortable environment for the children to enjoy, and the parents/caregivers are assured that their child is in a loving
safe environment. Camps are run throughout the summer months. Each session runs for 1 week with camp held on Monday through Friday. There is a morning session
from 9:30 AM-11:30 AM and an afternoon session from 1-3 PM.
"Meet Me Where I'm At", By Cindy Best - The book was inspired by the many gifted and
spirited children I work with at A.R.T.S. and the two incredible sons I raised. Meet Me Where I'm At was just picked up for publication by Future Horizons Inc.:
World Leader in Books, DVDs, and Conferences on Autism & Asperger's Syndrome. It will be released and available for purchase in the spring of 2017.
