March Break Camp
Attached you will find the Registration Form for March Break Camp – March 12-16, 2018. The demand for this Support has increased every year and we currently have no dedicated funding for this – so it must be financed by existing Fundraising and Donation proceeds. We are submitting Grant requests in hopes funding will come through – but until then we have to maintain a very conservative budget – which also limits our numbers for March Break Camp.
For the first time ever, we are going to take Applications and then draw Lottery Style for a maximum of 30 Spots. IF funding does become available – then we will look to add on possibly up to 20 more spaces. Therefore – Applications will be taken up to January 26, 2018 – that is a week later after Autism Ontario closes their applications for March Break funding www.autismontario.com – which unfortunately remains at a maximum of $350 – despite the increased cost of $475 that we have to have due to the Minimum Wage increase. Again – we encourage Families to inform Autism Ontario (who dispense funds from the Province) and their MPP that Funding for this Support is insufficient now due to the increase in minimum wage increasing the Cost of Supports!
