(Community, life and Skills Program)

A clasp is a device that connects things together, and our hope is that CLASP will be a connecting point for young adults with special needs, aged 18-35. Each week these young adults will be a part of a safe community where friendships will flourish, skills will be developed and a lot of fun will be had! Past activities have included hikes, cookie and cupcake decorating, yoga, learning how to knit, a 'Random Acts of Kindness Week', cooking and more!

If you are familiar with our summer camps, CLASP is not an extension of our SYAC program as it has a different purpose with different goals. We will have a 4:1 camper to staff ratio and therefore will NOT have the same level of support that SYAC affords. Campers will need to be able to participate fully with this level of support, be generally independent in the washroom and not have any aggressive behaviours.

We will be offering the program on Thursdays between January 12 and April 27Each day will run from 9:30am - 4:30pm (we will not run CLASP on March 16 for March Break).

We are limiting the number of campers to 8 per day.

The price for each day is $90/day. You can sign up for as many or as few of the days as you'd like.

Campers will need to bring their own snacks and lunches. We will have short breaks in the morning and afternoon for snacks and then a longer break for lunch. Hidden Acres strives to minimize our impact on the environment and encourages campers to use re-usable containers and create as little waste as possible. A microwave would be available if needed.
