NEXT STEPS

Camp Next Steps welcomes all children from 6 - 12 years of age, particularly those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or a suspected ASD diagnosis, language delays and learning disabilities. Through physical activity, computer programming, arts, swimming and more! Campers will explore themes around social skills, communication, and emotional regulation. We’ve partnered with McGill’s School of Physical and Occupational Therapy providing full time OT students, supervised by licensed OTs, who will be working with campers throughout the summer both 1:1 and assisting in group activities. Next Steps Camp gives campers the opportunity to practice and develop functional life skills in a safe, fun, and engaging environment. Siblings and friends are also encouraged to join us!

*A Note Regarding Summer 2024*

Dear Families, 

We have so appreciated your enthusiasm and support for our school the Little Red Playhouse, Coco’s Camp, and of course, our expanded programming for older children at Next Steps Camp over the years. As you know Next Steps Camp has grown very quickly in the few years we’ve offered it, and it has been such an honour and a joy to spend our summers together. Your child’s safety and development is of our utmost concern, and unfortunately without access this year to appropriate space due to renovations scheduled to take place in all of our multiple partnered locations, we will not be offering our Next Steps Camp programming for Summer 2024. We have spent a great deal of time and resources working to find alternatives but at this time we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel programming.

We understand that there is a large hole in the community for our families who need accessible and supportive programming and we plan to be a part of that solution in the future. As we look forward to the future we plan to expand our services to include greater family support and hope to be able to offer summer programming in the future, we look forward to welcoming everyone back at that time. If you require any further information or suggestions for alternate programming for this summer please do not hesitate to reach out.

 

We thank you for your understanding and support, 

La Fondation Place Coco and The Next Steps Camp Team
