Camp Lakey Gap - a Residential Camp for People with Autism

222 Fern Way

Black Mountain, NC

Camp Lakey Gap at Christmout is a camp for people with autism. Our program design is based on a successful philosophy for supporting people with autism. During a week at Camp Lakey Gap with 1:1 and 1:2 staff support, people with autism develop strong social skills and self-esteem by experiencing success with peers, being empowered to take leadership roles, successfully trying new things, and being supported in a positive and loving environment.

Camp Lakey Gap recognizes that each person with autism brings their unique point of view to camp. At all of our activities we strive to cater to your camper's individual needs and interests. Whether it is reptiles, outer space, Pokemon, or Harry Potter, we find a way to help your camper enjoy Camp Lakey Gap in their way. You are never too old for summer camp! A week for campers ages 18 and up extends life-changing opportunities to all ages.
