Another year has passed and it’s time to sign up for another summer of fun! Jamboree is an amazing opportunity for children on the Autism spectrum to gain experiences and engage in opportunities in a wide range of social and community skills. Certified BCBA’s/BCaBA’s run the program and all other program leaders have extensive experience in ABA, Verbal Behaviour and working with children with Autism. Children get to attend a variety of social based and group based activities such as the Vancouver Aquarium, UBC Canopy Walk, Science World, Playland, and many more. We teach functional living skills including using public transit to navigate to, and back from, our destinations. Parents and caregivers please provide the children with lunches and snacks for each day of the program.
Skills targeted during a day of camp:
- Conversations – both initiating and maintaining conversation on both preferred and non-preferred topics
- Referencing and Joint Attention
- Team decisions and how to work in a team
- Body language and facial expressions and how to read others
- Fine motor and gross motor skill
Prerequisite skills for camp:

***This is not a behaviour intervention program as its main focus is social skills development and fun. Group placement is determined by clinicians at the intake appointment and acceptance into the program is not guaranteed.
