Q. How Do We Register?
STEP 1: Complete this expression of interest form (NOTE: this is NOT the registration form)
Waiting List: Please note that completing this form does not guarantee a place on the camp, but we will contact you if the camp is fully subscribed. When the camp is full, you have the option to go on a waiting list and will be offered a place if there is a cancellation.
STEP 2: A member of the I CAN team will give your family a call approximately 4 - 6 weeks prior to the camp to share more information on the I CAN Camp experience so that you have the opportunity to understand whether the camp is the right fit for you/your young person and at the right time.
STEP 3: After Step 2; if it is the right fit for you/your young person and at the right time; we send you a registration link and TryBooking payment link so that you can deposit the $260 payment.
STEP 4: You will receive a confirmation email from us and your Colour Group Mentor will be in touch.
Note: Places on the camp are offered on a first-come-first-served basis. All expressions of interest are time stamped. Whilst this camp is broadly open to young people on the Spectrum, there are priority spots available to mentees at an I CAN School (until a cut off date). An I CAN School is a school that benefits from embracing Autism. Should these school places not be filled by the cut off date, they will become available to young people not at an I CAN School.
