Address:

Warriors For Autism Incorporated 3416 W. Main Street Tampa FL 33607 USA

Mission:

We are a 501c3 non profit organization dedicated to enlighten, enrich and empower the lives of families on the autism spectrum through our efforts to provide inclusive programs and services to the community.

Results:

We are presently embarking upon our 6th consecutive year of summer camp on the horse farm and we couldn't be more excited! Due to the generosity of many we were able to create a safe & sensory camp setting for many children who would normally not have the access to this type of experience. Camp has tripled in size from our first year and we have had the opportunity to help more families than we ever hoped. We are now looking for help from the community and individuals who will help fund the projects of expanding our project for the upcoming opening of the Warrior Fitness & Sensory Center - the first of its kind in Tampa Bay!

Target demographics:

Children and young adults on the Autism Spectrum in the Tampa, Clearwater & St. Petersburg areas.

Direct beneficiaries per year:

50 new children were able to experience our summer camp program. Others benefited from our establishing a sensory friendly monthly playdate! We are grateful to have had so many families enjoyed our FREE sensory friendly 4th Annual Winter Extravaganza Event!

Geographic areas served:

Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg

Programs:

An inclusive summer camp program on a horse farm for children with ASD and their siblings ages 6-16. Mini-camps during off-school breaks. Sensory/Allergy friendly holiday events for families throughout the year. An adaptive martial arts program for children aged 5+ to work on balance, speed/agility, hand/eye coordination and basic martial arts. Opening our Warrior Fitness & Sensory Center this summer which offers: Adaptive Fitness and Self Defense, a Sensory Room, Play Areas designed for individuals on the spectrum, but open to all!

My daughter has been going to Warriors for Autism camp for three years now. She looks forward to going every year and it is really a great program. She learns, makes friends and is able to do so many things there. Deanna and her helpers are truly angels.

This is the second year that my daughter has been going to summer camp with Deanna and Warriors For Autism. It is a fantastic program!! I wish it was available all year long! Deanna is wonderful, understanding and just fabulous with all the kids. The setting is great too because there is so much for them to do and the learning potential is endless. My daughter loves attending the camp and has developed more social skills and friendships. I can't say enough good things about Deanna or her program. I highly recommend it!

I'm Dani Bowman a 21 year old girl with autism that travels the country each summer teaching animation to young adults /kids on the autism spectrum and other related disabilities. I sometimes need to relax and deconpreess after teaching a class and Warriors For Autism is the perfect place.

I stopped by after my class to check it out, and I did not want to leave. It's fun for all ages. :)

And they also have Self Defense classes for girls...and boys!

As parents of autism! We were so thrilled to have our 2 yr old & 3 yr old son's become a part of such a heartwarming, helpful, compassionate organization!!! My whole family was welcomed with OPEN ARMS!! Which meant so much to us! We enjoy every second that we're at BA warriors! We're so thankful that you all were able to bring your visions to reality and impact the lives of us all who share similar journeys throughout our experiences with autism!! Were so happy to be apart of this successful journey with many more to come your way. You & your family are a blessing to us all! ❤️

I am working for the summer with the kids and working with them, seeing them interact with the animals and how much fun they have everyday is thrilling. Deena runs such a trustworthy and patient camp, the kids and staff enjoy it every day! I would recommend this to anyone who is trying to find a reliable camp to leave their kids.

I had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful family who runs the camp as well as own the gym/facility for children with special needs. Husband and wife make for a dynamic duo and they get it. It's our first year at the camp and we are delighted. The experience is such a value, as my two children become familiar with farm animals, and deal with their fears. The volunteers are helpful and kind. I am grateful our community can look to Warriors for Autism to support us.

For our son this place has been a beautiful experience. The staff, trainer and executives of the program are all focused on helping children with disabilities. Their core values are aligned with healing and happiness for our children. They are gifted in their work and are tireless in their determination to help even those who are most challenged, like my son. Orlando treated my son with respect, kindness and most of all, patience. I, as a mom, first the first time ever, actually sat in a chair... This is an amazing group of people who care.

I had a truly amazing experience as a summer camp counselor for Warriors for Autism. The difference we made and the true happiness on the children's faces as they interacted with farm animals and went horse back riding was extraordinary. Can't wait for many years with Warriors for Autism to come!

My 11 year old son attended for the first time this year. We just moved in the area and was concerned about so much transition. However, he found comfort and excitement going to this camp everyday. His verbal skills are limited and was asking to go back! He has never done that before. Deena and staff are incredible with the children. It was like dropping them off with a family member that understands and loves your child. He can't wait to go back next summer.
