This summer program will consist of structured activities supervised by two professionals, and 12-16 college students or paraprofessionals participating in a field experience and earning credits towards their degrees and/or professions.
This summer camp program takes place in Farmington during the month of July and August. This is a two week day program that runs Mondays through Thursdays from 10:00am to 2:00pm. There are two separate camp sessions. Call ASM to Request an Application Packet: 1-800-273-5200.

FINDING THE PIECES
The City of Biddeford in collaboration with the Autism Society of Maine (ASM) and the University of New England has developed a new summer camp for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). This camp experience is modeled after ASM's Camp Summit at the University of Farmington. The camp will be located at the John F Kennedy Memorial School (JFK), the same place where the City holds its Safari Camp summer recreational programs from August 7-18, 2017. Safari Camp and Finding the Pieces will run concurrently, providing a chance for children to commingle in a safe, fun and inclusive setting.
