The Story

Camp Argo is a non-profit organization and our mission is to promote and embrace the philosophy that "Everyone can be a HERO!"  At Camp Argo we strongly feel that it is important for your child to grow through interactive play, traditional and non-traditional sports, and other creative outlets in a safe learning environment.  


Camp Argo
believes in empowering campers to dream big, be kind to one another, find their strengths, try their best, and learn to lead by example.  To us at Camp Argo, this is the definition of a HERO


Our Autism Inclusion Program, which will be serving the needs of campers on the Autism Spectrum, is new this summer.  With your generosity, we will be able to support the hiring of staff that are educated & professionally trained to work with campers with special needs.  We hope to also acquire equipment & supplies that promote occupational & physical therapy as well as fun interactive games that will help us encourage social interaction among other campers.  To ensure that we can provide a safe environment with adequate resources WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Our Mission

Camp Argo's Autism Inclusion Programis prepared to provide your child with a safe, supportive and nurturing learning environment in a traditional camp setting.  There will be numerous summer camp programs to choose from, but for families with children on the autism spectrum, sometimes options are limited.  It is even more challenging to find a program that fits the needs of families who have neurotypical children and children on the spectrum. This is why, at Camp Argo, we strive to accommodate campers with different learning and social abilities.  Camp Argo is a place where siblings can come together to enjoy the benefits of a summer camp experience.  Camp Argo is confident that the low counselor/camper ratio (1:3, 1:2 and in some cases 1:1), visual schedules, flexible programming, and special activities that support individual skills (for example: archery, fishing, low ropes course, canoeing, nature walks, music and yoga) will help your child have a fun-filled week and finish their summer with memories & friendships to last a lifetime!
