Camp AweSum, a not-for-profit charitable organization, began as a youth-only camp in 2005. Additionally, in 2009 Moon Beach Camp began offering the family camp opportunity. In 2011, Camp AweSum assumed the organization of family camp in addition to the existing youth camp.
Camp AweSum is the result of dedicated hours of planning on behalf of a committed Board. Dr. Glenis Benson, an autism consultant, joined the Board at its inception. Other Board members include businessmen/women, parents of children with autism, special education teachers, an occupational therapist, and a registered nurse.
