Camp Royall

Our Mission

Camp Royall is a hub of year-round activity that offers a caring, accepting atmosphere and celebrates each individual. The 133-acre camp near Pittsboro is the nation’s largest and oldest autism camp, serving thousands of people each year.

Camp Royall provides typical camp activities, in a structured environment to meet the needs of individuals with autism:

Swimming Arts and crafts Hiking
Hayrides Boating

 

After spending time at Camp Royall, individuals show increases in confidence, independence, and a willingness to try new things. Our programs also provide needed respite for families and peace of mind that their loved one is in a safe and loving environment. Campers receive close supervision from highly trained staff; our counselor-to-camper ratio is 1:1 or 1:2, depending on the campers’ level of need.

During the summer, Camp Royall offers residential and day camp. Year-round programs include Family Fun Days, Family Camping, Mini Camps, Adult Retreats, Residential Camps and Day Camps during school breaks, Teen Retreats, and Teen Tuesday (social groups for teens).

*** Camp Royall will operate camp sessions on a limited basis to comply with state guidelines and directives related to COVID-19. Year-round activities and dates can be viewed here. Please note that all future activities are tentative and subject to change. Camp Royall is not currently open to visitors or the public. ***
