Registration Form


This program is cross-disability. It is intended for participants to come and have fun with peers over the weekend. It also gives their parents, guardians, and/or caregivers an opportunity to have some time on the weekend for themselves while their loved one is doing what they also love.

The program is specifically for families who are unable to access respite funding and/or support for whatever reason.


There are 3 age cohorts:

  • Kids
  • Teens
  • Adults

Each age group has one Saturday per month.
