Friends Of ASCCA: What Mobile Rotary Week is Like

My name is Chad Graddick and I was diagnosed with autism when I was 14 months old. I could not speak until at least 7 years old. In 1988, I started attending Camp Mobile Rotary at Camp ASCCA, which was held every summer.

I found out about Camp ASCCA through Goodwill of the Gulf Coast. They were airing a commercial about it. When we arrive at Goodwill of the Gulf Coast on Sunday, the staff members are there to greet us and handle our luggage. You can find ASCCA gear for sale and get all checked in and ready for a week at Camp.

Upon arrival at Camp ASCCA, counselors and program staff cheer for you as you pull in and wait for you to get off the bus, take you to your cabin and the fun begins.

My favorite thing to do at Camp ASCCA is the zipline, arts and crafts, and a boat ride. On the boat ride you will need to wear your life jacket and sunscreen and you can easily fall asleep on the boat ride. I like the zipline too, you have to make sure your helmet and harness are on properly and fit.
