By participating in the Camp Connection, children and youth will have the opportunity to develop skills related to: social interaction, maintaining friendships, learning about others, turn taking, and sharing skills. Participants will have opportunities to build new and lasting relationships through this virtual platform and hopefully beyond! Most importantly, our goal is to have FUN!
This week’s theme is Mad Science. Discover your inner scientist! From learning the properties of matter, to “how stuff works”, participants will work together using enthusiasm and curiosity to explore science. Throughout the week, opportunities to engage in science experiments, observations, and model-making will be incorporated.
Participant Age: 6-17 (Participants will be grouped by those with similar ages, strengths, and goals)
Ratio: 3 participants and 1 staff
Cost: No associated fees
Location: Will be delivered live via Zoom for Professionals and the following are required to participate:
Start Date: Monday, July 12, 2021
End Date: Friday, July 16, 2021
Pre-Screening Session: Prior to registration for any group, the child or youth will participate in a group pre-screen session. A group pre-screen session is an opportunity for the child or youth to see what a group at Kerry’s Place Autism Services looks likes. Based on the staff members’ observations during the group pre-screen session, and in consultation with the child or youth and their caregiver, our experienced staff will make recommendations for any service that might best meet the needs of the child or youth. Participating in a group pre-screen session does not guarantee that the child/youth will be enrolled in a particular group or service. Pre-screen recommendations are valid for 6 months and are only needed once prior to registering for a group.
If registration for a Camp Connection week is filled prior to registration close date/last available pre-screen session, a waitlist will be generated.
Last Available Pre-Screen Session: Wednesday, April 21, 2021
Registration Opens: Thursday, January 28, 2021
Registration Closes: Wednesday, May 5, 2021

Cancelled by Supported Person/Family: For the purposes of effective planning, when possible, Kerry’s Place appreciates 5 business days’ notice of cancellation before the start of the workshop/training.
