Article Published: Feb. 14 | Modified: Feb. 14

Crinkleroot Retreat, a free day camp to be held April 8 to 10, is recruiting campers ages 8 to 14 with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

The retreat will be held in Valle Crucis at Camp Broadstone and is staffed by trained Appalachian State University volunteers.

Crinkleroot Retreat is a program sponsored by Appalachian’s Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Institute for Health and Human Services within the College of Health Sciences. It is intended to provide parents and caretakers with free respite care, offer children on the autism spectrum the opportunity to participate in typical camp activities that have been modified for their specific needs, as well as celebrate April as Autism Awareness Month.

Children will have one-on-one supervision and be encouraged to take part in expressive arts and nature activities, field games, s’mores-making and other camp fun.

Applications are due by March 12 and availability is limited to 15 campers.

Parents and caregivers interested in participating in this program should contact Mary Sheryl Horine at ( to receive a camp application and information or visit
