What Is Friday Knights?

Friday Knights began in upstate NY in 2005. It grew from 30 children to its most recent…200! We are running its sister program, Friday Knights II, in Horry County. We too are starting out small, but have a big vision!

Friday Knights II is a structured and supportive recreational environment for children and adolescents who need opportunities for social interaction beyond what is available through school settings or community recreation programs

The participants include children and adolescents with Autism who have difficulties relating to their peers and may need extra support or more opportunities to use the skills they have learned in social skills groups. In addition, siblings and peers without difficulties in social relating are invited to join us and to enjoy the activities while serving as role models

Paid staff and volunteers from various professional and community organizations within Horry County are the counselors, activity leaders, and adult supports. Program staff is on site to provide guidance and supervision

Activities may vary by the age of the group but possibilities include structured board games, Wii games, movement, sensory activities, history, science, music and arts and crafts, as well as outings (older group only)
