Autism Bedfordshire - Summer Activity Schemes
Our Summer Activity Schemes are based in Bedford and Luton and provide a wide range of onsite activities and community based experiences for autistic children and young people aged 3 to 17 years. Each scheme is specifically designed to cater for the different needs, interests, ages and abilities of those that attend.
Junior Activity Scheme is for autistic children aged 3-9 years, and provides 1:1 support.
Holiday Club is for autistic young people aged 10-17 years with moderate to severe learning difficulties with 1:1 support provided.
Summer Fun is for autistic young people aged 10-17 years with Asperger’s Syndrome or lower support needs. Ratio of support is approximately 1:3.
All of our activity schemes provide a wide range of appropriate and engaging social, play and sporting activities including sand and water play, art and crafts, bouncy castles, swimming and visits to popular outdoor activity venues.
