WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW
Registration for Spectrum summer camp is open!
Spectrum is excited to offer 7 weeks of camp this year, including themed day camp, specialty camps such as technology, drama, science and counselor-in-training and our week-long Camp Journey. Spectrum is able to offer our summer camps at a reduced rate thanks to fundraising efforts such as the Georgia Race for Autism and community grants. If you are interested in making a donation to replace camp items recently stolen from our supply trailer, please click here for a link to our current needs.
