Starting with an ambitious project of providing overnight summer camp to people on the autism spectrum (Camp Lakey Gap), Lakey Gap Autism Programs has grown to include year-round offerings to support the community here in WNC.
Funds raised by Zipping for Autism will help Lakey Gap Autism Programs sponsor and expand recreational and therapeutic play groups for autistic children, vocational training opportunities for autistic adults, friends groups for autistic adults, and educational presentations and respite opportunities for parents and families.
Zipping for Autism will also fund camp scholarships for the renowned autism residential summer-camp program Camp Lakey Gap, which has week-long sessions serving both children and adults. Learn more at www.camplakeygap.com.
Please donate to Zipping for Autism
100% of the money raised from individual and team donations from Zipping for Autism supports the programs and services of the Autism Society of North Carolina in western NC, with a particular focus on advocacy, respite, and diagnostic services.
