East Bay Celiac Camp, Livermore Taylor Foundation runs it in partnership with YMCA. Offer camps for children facing many types of health challenges (including a camp for kids with autism) that might make it difficult for them to attend a sleep over camp. The cabins were new and clean, the counselors were fantastic, the food was delicious and my son can not wait to go back next year. Camps are typically 4-5 nights long, just long enough to give them a taste of being away from home. Website

Peninsula Camp Altitude, Belmont My 11-year-old son with Asperger's attended Camp Altitude this summer and really enjoyed it and made a lot of friends.
