We are a group of teachers, parents, and volunteers who give of our time to serve students and families impacted by Autism. Funds raised will allow us to provide a social skills day camp experience for children and teens on the Autism Spectrum. We have a Parent T.A.L.K. program that provides education and support for parents. We promote leadership skills as well as awareness through our Peer Mentor Program for area high school students. We also host family events throughout the year so that our campers and families can reconnect with one another to offer encouragement and support while strengthening friendships.
"Camp has been a safe place to push boundaries! Thank you David and Karissa Cockrell. Alberta (Columbia, S.C.)

"My son has overcome so many obstacles and this summer was such a success! He is really coming out of his comfort zone to achieve new goals... My daughter has put in 30 hours of volunteer service. That is a wonderful achievement for anyone, but for her to be ready and to know how rewarding this is at such a young age is such an accomplishment! Thank you for loving us and welcoming us into 'The Family'. I am blown away with the love and acceptance that you have shown us. We are blessed beyond measure. You have a place in Heaven with crowns full of jewels!!" Amanda (Pelion, S.C.)

"I want to say how lucky and priveledged I am to have found this camp. This is so magical and the best camp in the world. The people who volunteer and attend are special people." Daniel (Lexington, S.C.)
Camp T.A.L.K. relies completely on donor support to make it possible each year. Funds raised through Midland's Gives will support field trips, activities, guest speakers, parent education, all while allowing families to have to pay as little as possible. Our goal is to serve families with Autism and to turn no one away due to financial constraints.
