Camp Lakey Gap, a camp for people with autism, is located in Black Mountain, North Carolina at Christmount. Our program design is based on a successful philosophy for supporting people with autism that has been in use in a summer camp community since the early 70's.

During a week at Camp Lakey Gap with 1:1 and 1:2 staff support,  people with autism develop strong social skills and self esteem by experiencing success with peers, being empowered to take leadership roles, successfully trying new things, and being supported in a positive and loving environment.

Camp Lakey Gap recognizes that each person with autism brings their unique point of view to camp.  At all of our activities we strive to cater to your camper's individual needs and interests. Whether it is insects, reptiles, outer space, Pokemon, Thomas the Tank Engine, or Star Wars, we find a way to help your camper enjoy Camp Lakey Gap in their way.
