Summer Programs

summer swimmingIn July and August each year, we offer Therapeutic Summer Programs for children and youth with autism. There are two Summer Program options for families to choose from:

Autism Resource Centre Summer Programs

The ARC Summer Program is both goal-oriented and lots of fun! Our young people learn life skills and participate in recreational activities throughout the city. All participants are paired with a trained one-to-one staff person who assists in learning and ensuring children have a safe and positive summer.

The Summer Program runs Monday to Friday from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm through July and August with two age categories: ages 7-12  or 13 and over.  Please see the Summer Program Brochure for more information.

The registration date for ARC’s 2017 Summer Program will be announced in the coming months.

YMCA/ARC Inclusion Camp

ARC has a wonderful partnership with the YMCA to offer a fun and exciting inclusive summer experience for those who may not require one-to-one staffing or more intensive support. The YMCA/ARC Inclusion Camp runs for seven weeks through July and August, Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.  Please see the YMCA website brochure YMCA Summer Programs Brochure for more information.

Registration for the YMCA/ARC Inclusion Camp is done through the YMCA beginning in February each year.
