About us

The GACSN is a group dedicated to providing Special Needs youth from the ages of 7 to 25 with a fun Saturday afternoon of swimming, crafts, and meeting friends.  The group meets each Saturday afternoon from 12:30 to 3:30 at the Orleans Recreation Centre.  From 1 to 2, the group goes swimming and then returns to Hall D for crafts, games and music.

The group also goes on various outings (movies, bowling, museums, etc.) throughout the year to “mix things up” a little.

The program runs from September to June. Besides providing children with developmental delays and physical disabilities a program of activities which allow them to truly participate in the community for the betterment of their physical and social development; the program provides a few hours of respite time for parents/guardians.
