Welcome to the Great Lakes Bay Autism Center. Since 2009 the GLBAC has provided day camp experiences to dozens of elementary-age students with autism. The FREE three-week camp is held at Saginaw Valley State University. The GLBAC's Resource Fair and Walk-a-Thon takes place each fall. Monthly family meetings at the Mid Michigan Children's Museum provide parents with support and more resources, while the children have a supervised play experience.Donations and fundraisers help us provide these resources and events at little or no cost to participants. Tax-deductible donations, made to Great Lakes Bay Autism Center, can be mailed to 4450 Fashion Square Boulevard, Saginaw, MI 48603 or glbacautism@yahoo.com
