Summer Camp Spots Open to Children with Autism in Durham Region

FOOTPRINTS 4 Autism is pleased to offer a limited number of half-day and/or full-day camp spots during July and August to families in Durham Region who aren’t currently attending FOOTPRINTS respite program.

Open to children 13 years of age and under who have been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, Camp Great Strides is part of the FOOTPRINTS respite program. Since 2011, FOOTPRINTS has been offering summer and Christmas break holiday camps to our registered families.

Their generosity is also allowing us to increase our numbers and open our camps up to the community”, says Julie Cashin-Oster, Operations Manager.
