Career Development Camp

Career Development Camp is an educational opportunity for individuals impacted by autism spectrum disorder, social and communication challenges, and other learning differences.

The program is open to transition-age and post-secondary students who are looking to improve their skills in the areas of independent living, social communication, and employability skills. Turning Pointe partners with local employers to provide students access to hands-on training opportunities in a variety of fields and settings. Career Development Camp operates for 6-weeks, from June to July. Programming will be provided in skill-driven domains and students may enroll and participate in any or all courses in the domain areas. Students that attend the Career Development Camp often return for the full program in the fall

Turning Pointe Autism Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to serving families impacted by autism. As such, it will fundraise and cover as much of the annual operating expenses for the program as possible. However, family participation in the program is critical. To accommodate the Governor’s orders, the 2020 summer camp will be offered through virtual instruction at the discounted rate below. Total for all three sessions $1,500.
