Transitions Announces First-Ever Camp Experience

MAYFIELD — Transitions, a premier program designed to advance college and career success for young adults with autism spectrum disorders and other learning differences, announces its first-ever day camp at the program’s new Downtown Albany location. Camp is being held on Saturday, Dec. 4 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and allows individuals with autism between ages 15 and 27 to see if the program is a good fit. 

Students are guaranteed to have fun and grow while learning valuable skills and applying them in real-world situations. Transition camps are filled with activities that bring students closer together in a carefully structured, nurturing, and supportive environment designed to help them create lasting friendships with like-minded peers. 

As part of the day camp, students will experience a full range of activities focused on Transitions core curriculum, enrichment classes, and extracurricular activities. Skill building is woven into all activities, and peer mentors are fully trained and vetted to provide students with a safe and transformative experience. Lunch and dinner are included. 

“Our camps give a glimpse of our full year program,” said Penny Rivenburg, Senior Director, Transitions. “If you join us, you will experience Transitions, you will meet current students and mentors, and learn tools that will help you in your future. Best of all, you will have fun.” 

Transitions was founded in 2015, with its main campus in Mayfield, NY. The program opened its second location in Albany in September of this year. 

The Downtown Albany campus is in partnership with Mildred Elley and allows students to access local colleges and universities while benefiting from the supports offered under the Transitions model. The new campus hosts full year programs and can accommodate both residential and day students.
