Aspire is a program of the Massachusetts General Hospital and Partners Healthcare Systems that serves more than 200 participants, teens, and young adults with social cognition challenges, including Asperger’s Syndrome, High Functioning Autism, Nonverbal Learning Disorder, and Autism Spectrum Disorders. Aspire Summer Camp serves more than 100 participants aged 5-15 who have the cognitive capacity for solid peer connections but who lack the understanding and skill set to form those connections. The summer program is an immersive experience in which campers are placed into well-matched groups, with participant: staff ratios no greater than 3:1. Participants engage in outdoor education activities, such as swim lessons and boating, theme-based curriculum, such as art or recreation, and skill building lessons to support in the development of social skills, stress management strategies, and self-awareness.
