UCP of Sacramento sends autistic children to summer camp
United Way California Capital Region nonprofit partner UCP of Sacramento and Northern California sent thirteen autistic children ages 8 -12 to summer camp at Grizzly Creek Ranch in Portola, California. Grizzly Creek Ranch is a special needs camp that helps the children learn swimming, arts and crafts, kayaking, archery, volleyball, scooter hockey, fishing, soccer and dancing. Attending summer camp was a great opportunity for the children to build relationships with each other, their instructors and other kids at camp.
Each child that attended camp has been going to after-school development classes at the Autism Center for Excellence (A.C.E.) at Sacramento State. A.C.E. is a program through UCP of Sacramento and Northern California designed specifically for children ages 8-12 with autism, that helps them learn how to interact with the outside world and integrate into community activities.
