ASD Summer Jamboree 2019

AGES 6 - 11 and 12 - 14

Another year has passed and it's time to sign up for another summer of fun! Jamboree is an amazing opportunity for children on the Autism spectrum to gain experiences and engage in opportunities in a wide range of social and community skills. Certified BCBA's/BCaBA's run the program and all other program leaders have extensive experience in ABA, Verbal Behaviour and working with children with Autism. Children get to attend a variety of social based and group based activities such as the Vancouver Aquarium, UBC Canopy Walk, Science World, Playland, and many more. We teach functional living skills including using public transit to navigate to, and back from, our destinations. Children provide their own lunches and snacks for each day of the program.

The cost is $360 a week

Available Weeks (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays):
~ Week 1 ~ July 9-11 ~ Week 2 ~ July 16-18 ~ Week 3 ~ July 23-25
