Family Camp

Family camp is an opportunity to vacation with other families who “understand your story.” The age and functioning level of the person on the Autism Spectrum is irrelevant for this camp. This is an extraordinary opportunity for families to relax and rejuvenate in an idyllic Northwoods setting while enjoying the understanding and support provided by other families and by an organization and staff that embrace differences. You’ll have opportunities to share tales and laugh about things only families such as yours could know and appreciate!

Respite is provided to parents daily between breakfast and lunch. This is an opportunity for the parents/caregivers to do whatever you like while your child(ren) are supported in activities designed to engage and entertain them by a staff devoted to children on the Autism Spectrum. Some families come equipped with their bicycles and take advantage of the miles of bike paths in the area. Others go kayaking, fishing, hiking, while still others have participated in yoga sessions. Three hours to rejuvenate daily is a most welcome aspect of family camp.

***IMPORTANT! After registering, please check your account for any incomplete tasks or forms. Your Special Diet Form, Liability & Waiver Form, etc. are necessary for us to host camp and to offer our best hospitality.***

I’m going to register for Camp AweSum Family Camp and I’d like to complete forms before Registration Day. Can I do that? Which forms will I need?
Yes! You may complete forms up to 30 days before Registration Day (January 2nd at 9:09am). The forms you need should be in the Document Center:

  • Special Diet Form for everyone in your party
  • Liability Waiver for everyone in your party
  • Media Release for everyone in your party
  • Camper Support Form for anyone who will be left in our care (minors and dependent adults)
  • Moon Beach and Camp AweSum Payment Form for everyone in your party 

Can I waitlist more than one event session?
Yes! You may waitlist as many events as you like.

Can I attend more than one event session of the same type?
Yes! However, if all the events of that type are FULL and have waitlists, we will first invite waitlisted guests to attend before you may attend a second event of that type.

When I registered for Family Camp, I didn’t see as many forms as I’m used to. Why?
We have put your Liability Waiver, Media Release, Special Diet Form and other forms outside of the registration process. This means that if you have not already filled those out for another event you’ve attended recently you will need to fill those out AFTER your registration. These forms are necessary for us to host camp and offer our best hospitality, so it is necessary that you fill them out as soon as possible. Please note that any camps requiring Camper Support Forms and Third-Party Billing must be filled out within one month of registration or you will relinquish your family’s registration and we will pull the next family from the waitlist. Don’t worry, we’ll contact you with a reminder!

I am unable to pay the full deposit today. May I still register?
Yes! Part of our mission includes money never being a barrier to participation at our sites. Please call us and we will help you complete your registration with the amount you are able to pay today. We will also help you set up a payment plan for the rest of your deposit and event fees, including assisting you with a scholarship application should you need it.

How do I edit a form after I’ve completed the Registration Process?

  • Filling out a new form that is required for your session: You will see “Incomplete Tasks” highlighted on your account homepage. Click to find a list of tasks/forms to complete in order to attend camp. Complete each form until no more incomplete tasks/forms are listed!
  • Making changes to an existing form: When you’re logged into your account’s homepage, click on the account member’s name whose forms you’d like to edit. Next click “My Forms.” All your current forms should appear. Click on the name of the form you’d like to edit. Complete the changes on the form. Be sure to save your changes by clicking the button at the bottom of the form!

What if the event is full?
If the event is full, please register for the Waitlist! Every year we are able to offer spots to waitlisted guests so please don’t overlook this option. If a spot becomes available, you will be contacted by phone or email to decide if you still want to attend the event.
