Each year, REACH reserves a set number of spaces at program delivery partners’ locations across Ontario for children and youth who require 1:1 support in order to participate in recreational programming and/or attend camp. There are two steps to the REACH registration process:

    1. For both new and returning participants, it is necessary that REACH be contacted prior to registering for programs at our partners’ locations. A REACH Program Coordinator will then help guide you through the program selection process. Following this, your space will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
    2. Once the participant’s space is reserved and confirmed at a partner’s location through REACH, the next step is to register with the program delivery partner and to pay all related fees.

We’ll support you through every step and look forward to hearing from you!
