When COVID-19 meant the cancellation of our in-person spring programs, we started thinking about how we could deliver our Amicus programs in a safe manner. We are proud to announce that we have developed four programs for this spring that will be able to deliver remotely. The intention of these programs is to provide some engaging, interactive programming for Amicus participants for 1 1/4 hours each week for 7 - 8 weeks.

At the program start time, your child will log on to a private Zoom session for weekly programs, social skills, and social coaching in small groups. Each group will be limited to six participants and two leaders so we will maintain our usual 3:1 participant to counsellor ratio. Each session will consist of a social skill lesson, a program themed activity, a wrap-up and de-brief. We will be sanitizing, organizing, and delivering all of the program supplies to your door.* All programs are self-contained and meant to be done with limited assistance from parents to ensure that you can get a break too!

We have four programs to choose from:

  • Mondays - Art
  • Tuesdays - Science Wonder
  • Wednesday - DCD/Multi-sport
  • Thursday - Engineering

Amicus Recreation will be offered at two separate times in the afternoon.

Each program costs $100. We will not be taking a deposit for registration. As always, if you require a payment plan, please let us know.

Additional information (including Zoom link and password) will be provided in your “Here We Go!” e-mail about one week before programs begin.

In order to participate in our online Amicus Recreation programs, your child must have participated in an Amicus or social skills program through Foothills Academy previously. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept any new intakes at this time.
