March Break Camps Are Cancelled

Updated April 1, 2020 11:00 am

All Programs are currently cancelled and we are looking at a virtual platform due to COVID-19.

 Autism Ontario has reached out with helpful resources for families living with individuals on the Autism Spectrum during this time. These resources include caregiver tips, mental health support and fun activities.

This list of resources is bilingual and will be updated daily. As they gather more resources, they hope to add Indigenous and Cultural sections to this list as well.

I struggled internally for a long time, but through Girls Inc. I learned that my body is a resource, not an object. I began to love and embrace my body.
