An inclusive Iowa summer day camp is the first in the state to combine activities for children with autism spectrum disorder and their peers without autism. "They're learning great things," said a Camp Be A Friend official. "Children teaching children how to behave, how to socialize (and) how to be friends." A two-week pilot session at the new camp served 43 children, about half of whom have autism, and there are plans to expand next year.
