Kites Youth Group (Camp Mohawk)

Camp Mohawk - Kestrals

An after school youth group for ages 12-14.

'Kites' is a youth project for children (for ages between 12 - 14) and is part of Camp Mohawk's Short Breaks Programme which is aimed at children and young people with High Functioning Autism (HFA) and what used to be called Aspergers Syndrome (AS) .

Kites youth group meets every other Tuesday evening during term time and uses Camp Mohawk as its primary venue, as well as taking a trip out to another activity centre at the end of each term. The group participates in a variety of activities including archery, cookery, games nights, swimming (during the summer months) and discos at Camp Mohawk, amongst others.

The friendly and supportive staff are there to encourage members to have fun and make friends, and the experiences offered are aimed at boosting confidence and self esteem.

When exisiting Kites members reach the age of 15, or when they are of an agreed ability, they are then given the opportunity to move up to our more senior group called Hawks.

There is currently a waiting list in operation for places on the Kites youth group. For more information and to arrange a visit to talk about joining Kites please contact donna.levy@campmohawk.org.uk for details.
