My Summer Journey

Develop friendships   • Build simple skills • Exercise • Fun

My Summer Journey is a summer program for teens on the autism spectrum, ages 13-19.  Our fun-filled days help keep kids in a routine that can make the transition back to school much easier. The focus of the program is to make new friends along with working on life and social skills.

My Summer Journey will meet Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 4:00pm during June 2023. Participants will meet and be picked up at Earlywood Education Center in Franklin each day. My Summer Journey will have a themed curriculum along with several community outings throughout the session. Each session cost $150 per week (private pay.) Participants must be able to attend the full week and can register for multiple sessions as long as the session has not reached the limit of participants.
