Are you looking for a fun experience for your child during their Spring Break this March? The Autism and Developmental Disorders Lab (ADDL) is hosting FREE half-day sessions between March 16th and March 27th! The Spring Break Camp will take place in the ADDL located at Simon Fraser University, Burnaby Campus.

Children ages 3 to 12 years old with and without a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder will get to engage with one another in various activities, play exciting games, make lots of crafts, and participate in research and learning activities. This camp is available for free through a research fund, so we ask that caregivers complete surveys about their child for research purposes (most surveys can be completed online before the camp session).

Who can attend?

Children ages 3 to 12 years old with or without a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. We ask that children are able to use the toilet without assistance from staff, otherwise, a caregiver or support worker must remain with the child during the session.

  • Monday, March 16 – 9:00 am to 12:30 pm
