Camp New Amigos is Hearts for Autism’s flagship program for children with autism spectrum disorders. Camp New Amigos was created over a decade ago to give children with autism the chance to get a camp experience, make friends, and have fun. Camp is designed for the children to experience a “typical” camp environment with the structure that is needed. Activities for children at the camp can include arts and crafts, archery, horseback riding, rock wall climbing, sensory activities, swimming and much more. Registration will be open soon and reserve your spot for this year’s camp. The 
NMSU Autism Diagnostic Center is partnering with NMSU Communication Disorders and Hearts for Autism Fund to plan Camp New Amigos for this summer.  Camp will run June 3-7, 2023. Camp will be held at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM.  

REGISTRATION is now CLOSED!  Looking forward to seeing all the Campers!
