CAMP SPECTRUM - 2018

Camp Spectrum, our Summer Day Camp for Children & Youth with Autism is a recreation program for children and youth on the Autism Spectrum between the ages of 4 and 25.  Each camper receives 1 to 1 support from counselors with autism-related experience and training and activities are designed specifically with each individual participant's needs and interests in mind. On the surface our camp looks like any other -- we will go swimming, boating, do arts & crafts -- but we will also make adapations to accommodate the special sensory and behevioural needs of all our campers.   

The camp typically runs for 7 weeks each summer in 4 different locations --- Middleton, Kingston, Kentville and Hantsport.

Details coming VERY soon about this summer's CAMP SPECTRUM!

To begin the registration process, please contact Sandy at annapolisvalley@autismns.ca.* and let us know the following:
 - your son or daughter's name and age
 - your 1st., 2nd. and 3rd. choice of camp sessions**

Registration will close on May 29th. at 4:00pm. At this point we will notify all those campers who have received spots and send out Profile forms to be completed. These forms will need to be returned by June 2nd. at 4:00pm. Payment will be due, in full, two weeks in advance of each camp session.

* Please EMAIL rather than phoning so that we are able to date-stamp registrations and allocate camp spots in a fair manner.

** We will do our best to accommodate families but if the number of registrants is high, which we expect it to be, campers may not get their first choice of session or may be restricted to a single session throughout the summer. Spots will be awarded on a first-come-first-serve basis and we expect them to go quickly so we encourage families to contact us without delay when registration opens May 24th.
