POISE is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that provides summer camp scholarships to children with Asperger’s Syndrome and other boys and girls on the high functioning end of the autism spectrum (including kids who don’t fit a specific diagnosis but are described fondly as “spectrum-y” or “quirky”.)

POISE focuses on this population because these amazing children have the most to gain from excellent summer camps that focus on the social and emotional growth of young people. The unique level of support and sense of community offered by a camp setting instills in them invaluable social skills, transformative self-esteem, life-long core values, and an unparalleled sense of connection. By supporting POISE, you can help children experience the magic of camp, profoundly changes their lives forever.
