Camp Rising Sun was founded in 2006 by a group of parents and professionals who wanted a summer camp experience for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders in the state of New Mexico. In 2009, Camp Rising Sun became a part of the Autism programs at the University of New Mexico Center for Development and Disability.

Residential camps are designed specifically for individuals with ASD between the ages of 8 and 13. An adolescent camp is provided for those individuals with ASD between the ages of 14 and 17.

Camp Rising Sun provides an inclusive summer camp environment that includes typically developing same-age peers.

Camp activities include swimming, hiking, sports, arts & crafts, games, kayaking, horseback riding, music, drama, campfires, hayrides, a ropes course, and friendship building activities.

You guys rock!!!  I couldn't wait another minute to tell you how much fun the girls had last night!  What a great lesson!  We didn't even need the games because they enjoyed what they were doing so much.  One of the coolest things was seeing girls who were a little bit timid, feel comfortable enough to try things that they normally wouldn't have tried.  What a great time!  Well done all!
