Our programs may not be a good fit for some children who present with aggressive or oppositional behaviors, limited language skills, limited cognitive ability or limited self-care skills. They may best be served by a program that offers a higher level of individual support and/or is geared toward behavior modification.
Contact us at 610-296-6725 x115 to discuss whether or not our programs can meet your child’s needs.
We are happy to recommend an appropriate camp for your child if we believe they would best be served by another program.

Located on Camp Kweebec’s 200+ acres in Schwenksville, Pennsylvania, Summer L.I.F.E. Traditional Day & Overnight Camp offers a camp experience for youth and young adults, ages 8-21, that fosters independence and cultivates friendships within the context of traditional camp activities such as fishing, swimming, boating, arts & crafts, sports & games, cooking and environmental education.
Many, but not all, of our campers have been diagnosed with high-functioning autism/Asperger’s Syndrome and have difficulty connecting with their peers. They deeply desire friendships, but due to difficulties with social skills, spend much of their time feeling socially isolated and lonely.
Experienced staff, on-site behavior support, low camper-to-staff ratios, small group activities and structured daily programming support campers as they enjoy a summer of learning and fun!
Transportation for the “day camp” will be provided to/from our Malvern campus and the camp property in Schwenksville. Families may also choose to drop off and pick up their day campers at Camp Kweebec daily.
Families of overnight campers are responsible for transportation to the camp property on Sunday. Families may choose to pick overnight campers up at the camp property or at our Malvern, PA campus on Friday.
