Summer Camp Goes Virtual Thanks to Support from Admirals Cove Foundation
Our team at the Foundation has been working diligently, shifting many programs and services from in-person to virtual. Our goal is to help families keep some routines as they navigate this difficult time.
One of the largest virtual endeavors has been a six-week virtual summer camp, providing opportunities for individuals to actively engage with staff and peers while participating in a variety of activities. Campers have been busy with at-home scavenger hunts, story building, guest instructors, and even virtual golf! A special theme each week keeps campers engaged and excited for new activities. Highly skilled staff in the areas of recreation, speech and language, behavior analysis, fitness, special education, and music therapy facilitate the activities and provide support to enable individuals to participate in activities with their peers.
This summer’s virtual camp was made possible through a donation from the Admirals Cove Foundation, the philanthropic foundation of The Club at Admirals Cove, a private community in Jupiter, Florida. Admirals Cove Foundation is improving lives outside of their gates by making a meaningful impact in the areas of local health, education and social services in Palm Beach County.
“Since 2015, Admirals Coves Foundation has been a generous supporter of Els for Autism,” Nicole Poundstone, Development Manager at Els for Autism said. “Their commitment to our cause means more now than ever.”
