Sylvan Learning Summer Camps

The Autism Society of PEI is happy to announce that we will once again be partnering with Sylvan Learning to host our week long summer camps. These camps are free for all paid members of the Autism Society but we do have registration capacity so please be sure to get in touch if you are interested. During the week of July 29th- August 2nd, they will be hosting a Robotics/ Ninja Numbers camp from 9:00-11:00am. Each camp will run for two hours each day. We will also be hosting a Coding camp those same dates in the afternoon from 12:00-2:00pm. Coding is aimed at children Grades 3-8 and the Robotics Program/ Number Ninja Camp will be for Grades 1-6. If you are interested in registering for the camps for now you can connect with me here at the office. Attached please find a camp flyer. Also of note- campers who attend these two hour programs have the option for a $5.00 to extend their camp day by spending an hour or two after camp at That Fun Place for parent pick up. Staff from Sylvan Learning will walk campers directly from Sylvan to That Fun Place where kids are welcome to play until their parents pick them up. This add on option is only available for those attending the Sylvan Camps.

Please see attached Sylvan Flyer for more details. To register connect with me here at the office and we can confirm membership status and discuss which options you are wanting to register for.
