The Autism and Developmental Disorders Lab (ADDL) at Simon Fraser University (SFU) is hosting our 8th annual SFU Social Science Camp. This is a FREE, fun, and educational camp for children ages 7-12 with or without a diagnosis of  Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). 

The camp offers a mix of social games and an opportunity to participate in research during fun activities. This year’s theme is “Superheroes: Finding My Super Powers” and all children will receive a SFU Social Science Camp T-shirt! Camp volunteers are composed of SFU faculty, students, and community professionals. This camp will be held at the Burnaby Mountain campus of SFU. This year, we will be holding a draw for all camp participants for a brand new iPad (odds of 1 in 100)! Spots are limited, so sign up today!

  • The camp for children without a diagnosis of ASD will take place on Saturday, July 13, 2019 from 9am – 3pm at SFU, Burnaby campus.
  • The camp for children with a diagnosis of ASD will take place on Saturday, July 20, 2019 from 9am – 3pm at SFU, Burnaby campus. 

We will also be offering free workshops for caregivers on the day of the camp, available to all members of our community who are interested in attending! More information will become available on our website when the workshops are finalized.
