UPDATED 2020 Summer Camps
It's not too late to plan summer activities! Autism Society - The Heartland has gathered information about local summer camps that are designed for children and/or adults on the spectrum. With continued concerns surround the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations are cancelling their summer 2020 sessions. We have crossed out those organizations on our document for easy identification. Click here for access to the updated document.
After continuing to consult with local officials, and in an abundance of caution, Autism Society - The Heartland made the decision to CANCEL or POSTPONE all in-person June 2020 events. We are exploring options to reschedule the events and provide virtual options. Our physical office at the KU Edwards Campus will remain closed throughout the entire month of June.
