My Summer Journey Sponsorship

Being a sponsor of My Summer Journey provides direct support for teens with autism to work on social and life skills while making new friends. Your sponsorship will go towards supporting the program for 12 months with an option of choosing reoccurring monthly payments.

Cost of the Program

Our goal for the cost of the My Summer Journey is to be minimal to the individuals with autism and their family members. We want all teens with autism to be able to participate. The cost for each participant is $150 per session. My Summer Journey is one of the lowest cost summer camp fees for those with autism in the State of Indiana. The actual cost of the whole program including staff hours, supplies, facility rental is much higher than what the registration cost for each participant.

Did You Know?

More than 40 percent of the teens with autism never see friends outside of school. Half were never invited to take part in activities.

Teens with autism are at risk of being bullied by peers because of repetitive behaviors, unusual interests, or not having age-appropriate social skills. Due to the chaos of puberty and the increased social expectations from their peers, autistic teens often struggle with their emotions. Some develop depression or anxiety. Having a program like My Summer Journey will allow teens with autism to learn how to make friends and to be themselves in a safe environment while enjoying fun summer activities and outings in the community. My Summer Journey participants are usually nervous the first day of the program, but by the end of the week participants can’t wait to come back and look forward to next summer’s program.
