Camp Great Strides ~ Winter Break 2018/2019

Camp Great Strides incorporates many of the familiar routines, games, songs and activities you may remember from camp. Each session has a theme with appropriate games, craft activities and adventures to complement the theme.

The camp is run by the Camp Program Coordinator, a Camp Counselor and staffed by FOOTPRINTS 4 Autism volunteers, all of whom have completed their required training programs and who are dedicated to providing a safe and happy environment for the children.

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 and is open to families in Durham Region.

Together We ‘Hang’

Since 2015, FOOTPRINTS 4 Autism has been running Together We ‘Hang’, a weekly social program for youth with Autism and their peers. Currently, we have two programs in progress (4-6 pm) on Mondays at the Whitby Library and Wednesdays at the Pickering Library.

We have had wonderful feedback about Together We ‘Hang’, however we would like to hear from the community on how we can make it better. We appreciate your input – it will assist us with planning and securing funding.
