It’s that time!  Online registration is open from March 1 – 31 for AO York’s Summer Day Programs.  We are proud to serve people with autism, age 4 through adulthood, and across the spectrum.


You can register for the following programs in March:

  • Autism Ontario Kids Camp (AOK Camp) for children and youth ages 4 – 17 years who require 1:1 support
  • Autism Ontario Adult Summer Program (AOA Summer Program) for adults aged 18+ who require 1:1 support
  • Social Skills Summer Institute (SSSI) for youth and adults aged 13+ who require 1:2 support and are interested in future employment and social engagement with peers

Location of camp:  To Be Confirmed – will be at a school in the Richmond Hill area

Hours:  Drop-off between 9:00am – 9:30am;  Pick-up between 3:00pm – 3:30pm

Dates:  July 3rd – August 18th (Closed Monday August 7th for Civic Holiday)

Cost:  AOK/AOA = $475/week

SSSI = $350/week

NEW:  Our SSSI program will be taking registrations from March 1st – 20th – then we will be screening applicants in an in-person meeting to assess suitability.  If SSSI is deemed not a suitable program, then you can register for the AOK/AOA programs which will still be open. In-person screenings will be held in the evening between March 21st and March 28th.

Registrations are NOT first come, first served.  Here is how we manage registrations:

Preference for camp weeks is given to our current Chapter Volunteers who volunteer 40+ hours/year to running the Chapter. Our camp remains a Co-operative Program. Volunteers are vital to our existence. Continuing to serve our ever expanding community of families who have children, youth and adults with ASD, we will see the need for our camp program grow. Volunteer opportunities are always available please connect with our Chapter Manager to find out more.

Registration is NOT first come, first served. The registration window will be open for thirty-one (31) days. After which time, we will close the link and assess our availability. Preference for weeks will be given to our current volunteers who support the on-going operations of the Chapter (as mentioned above), then we will designate weeks to our secondary volunteers who help us out on an ad-hoc basis. Then weeks will be designated to families who are York Chapter members but are not able to volunteer and finally what weeks remain will be designated to our non-members and non-volunteers.

Our summer programs wouldn’t be nearly as awesome without the support of our fantastic funders, Reuter Benefits (partners for our annual Charity Golf Classic) and the Magna Hoedown.

Roll on summer!
