For Teens

Teens with developmental disabilities, such as Autism, have limited opportunities to be part of an engaging summer camp experience. They may struggle finding appropriate social opportunities where they have the support to make friends and have fun with their peers. Due to the lack of appropriate programming, many young individuals with special needs are stuck at home, isolated.

Xcite Steps offers these teens a summer camp in San Diego like no other. They get to be part of a small group summer camp with a max of 12 campers and a 3:1 counselor ratio or if needed 1:1 support . With this support they are able to do all the activities that typically developing children experience. This camp stands out from others because of our experienced but youthful staff who promote self-worth, provide social coaching, positive role modeling and social confidence. Also, unlike other camps CampSteps runs all summer long; June, July and August.

Xcite Steps has selected fun sports, recreational activities and games coupled with exciting community outings to help inspire and develop friendships. Some of the weekly San Diego field trips at Xcite Steps summer camp include water parks, Boomers, bowling, Nickel City etc. Beach days include water sports instruction such as surfing, boogie-boarding and body-surfing. Our lifeguard friends will visit in the beginning of the week to introduce water safety training.

Providing a supportive, encouraging and empowering environment for teens experiencing a disability is made possible by qualified counselors with many years of mentoring, teaching and social coaching experience. They support the teens on an individual basis. The abilities of each camper are promoted to ensure they have the best summer camp experience ever!
