My daughter is currently  in her second week of camp through the Developmental Center for Children and Families (www.dccfnj.com) - camp is held at the Celebrate the Children school in Wharton.  The camp utilizes the principles of Dr. Stanley Greenspan's DIR/Floortime while engaging the campers in a variety of typical camp activities alongside "typical peers" including arts/crafts, water play, yoga, singing/dancing, and special guests.  Each week has a "theme" (current week is "circus). The first day I picked her up, my daughter said "I LOVE this camp".  She has her own personal aide (young college student) trained in floortime principles that stays with her and continuously facilitates interaction and conversations with her peers.  I would highly recommend this program !
