Camp Mohawk

Camp Mohawk logo

Mohawk is a multi-functional day centre for children and young people with special needs, set in 5 acres of beautiful countryside, just outside Wargrave, Berkshire. Throughout the year the centre provides a range of activities, facilities and natural space to encourage children with a variety of special needs to play, socialise and learn in a secure and caring environment.

Activities provided include:

  • Kites, Kestrels and Hawks -a youth groups for teenagers and young adults with HFA (High Functioning Autism) and AS (Aspergers Syndrome). 
  • 'Adventure Days' which run from 10am – 4pm in half term, Easter and Summer holidays. They are aimed at children and young people with HFA (High Functioning Autism) and AS (Aspergers Syndrome). The aim of the days is to help the young people to gain confidence and self esteem, to make friends and have fun in a secure and supportive environment. Activities often include lasermission (like laserquest but outside in the woods), animal workshops and archery.
  • Family days where the whole family is encouraged to come along and to play and socialize, both with each other and with other families.
  • An annual siblings day during the summer holidays which runs along similar lines to our ‘Adventure days' and often includes archery, bouncy castle, lazer mission, animal workshops etc

We run a variety of services in all school holidays (except Christmas) including family days and space for special needs support groups, we also offer occasional family sessions after school and on term time weekends. We run limited respite ‘short breaks’ services in holidays and after school for children and young people with High Functioning Autism – these services are run in 2 age groups; 8 to 13 years (currently fully subscribed with a closed waiting list) and 13 to 25 years.
