Camp COAST (Children on the Autism Spectrum Together) is a summer day camp specifically for children with autism and developmental disabilities that allow them to feel comfortable in a safe, fun and nurturing environment. Camp COAST is designed to meet the needs of children between the ages of 5-10 (Camp COAST JR) and 11-16 (Camp COAST Middle) who are considered high functioning on the autism spectrum.

Camp COAST has a maximum of 20 children in camp each week. Each camper will have a teen intern assigned to him/her (ages 5-10). The teen intern supports the Camp COAST child in their daily activities and accompanies them on field trips. Daily activities include, but are not limited to: swimming, sensory games and various events designed for children on the autism spectrum or with developmental disabilities.

The camp attends weekly field trips to places all around the Tampa Bay area. A Pinellas County school bus will be used to transport all children to and from any activities that occur off YMCA property.
