Summer Day Camps provides participants with the opportunity to attend five-consecutive days of camp outdoors!
Each daily camp is highly supported by trained staff, who help participants enjoy outdoor sports, games, and crafts in a phyiscally distanced environment.
Participants will play games and learn movement skills and drills while practicing listening, transitions and taking turns.

At Canucks Autism Network, we strive to meet the needs of each participant through parent and participant collaboration. Our staff receive training on a variety of support strategies for individuals with autism. Please do not hesitate to speak with our staff on-site about strategies that should be implemented (e.g., visual schedules, first-then boards, token systems, social stories, etc).
Activity Storybooks describe activities or situations as well as the expected behaviours in a given context using words and often pictures. Participants can read Activity Storybooks prior to engaging in an activity to help prepare them and build predictability.
