By participating in the Camp Connection, children and youth will have the opportunity to develop skills related to: social interaction, maintaining friendships, and learning about others through fun activities that strengthen turn taking and sharing skills as well as their imagination. These activities may include: virtual field trips, art challenges, mad science experiments, group games, movement breaks, and much more. 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! We are looking to create new opportunities for parents and our facilitators to interact with participants in a structured way. Our online programs encourage movement, engaging activities and peer interactions.

Pre-Registration: Prior to registration for any group, the child or youth will participate in a group pre-screen. A group pre-screen is an opportunity for the child or youth to see what a group at Kerry’s Place Autism Services looks like. Based on the staff members’ observations during the group pre-screen, 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 does not guarantee that the child/youth will be enrolled in a particular group or service. Pre-screens are valid for 6 months and are only needed once prior to registering for a group.
Registration: Registration opens on Friday, October 30, 2020 and will close on on Friday, December 18, 2020.
