Party Hearty for Valentine's Day!
The big party will be split up into two sections, the Family Social and the Teen Dance.
The Family Social party will be from 6-7:30 at Friends School Gym. We promise all the fun of last year, including games, prizes, crafts, music, a photo boo th, and concessions. After that, it's time for the families to leave, and for the teens to turn up the party and dance! 

IMPORTANT: The Cape Henry Rotary Club has generously offered to 
start a birthday club for FACT's families. If your child with ASD will be  attending the Family Social and he or she has a January or February birthday, please tell us by Wednesday, February 10th. They will be bringing cake, and we do not want anyone to be left out!   

The Teen Dance  will go from 7:30-9, and is for ages 15 & up only. There will be plenty of music and dancing, party favors, a buffet (pizza, chicken tenders, and munchies), a photo booth with prop box, and a souvenir photo for all who attend. Please note: this section of the night requires registration, as it is our February Teen Night Event. The event fee is $15. There is no dress code, so feel free to have fun with it.
Folks We Love 
VCRA keeps us rolling... literally
FACT would like to take a minute to express our deepest gratitude to the Vintage Car Rally Association - VCRA for their exuberant generosity and dedication to helping families affected by autism. Because of their strong commitment of goodwill to FACT, we can now host another year of iCan Bike Camp! The ability to ride a bike is an invaluable skill- one that many children with disabilities do not possess. Thank you to Rex Gardner and everyone at the VCRA. Thank you for believing in our mission year after year. It is such an honor to call you all our partners.

Basketball Clinic
Gonnawannaswishagin' provides a small, interactive, supportive atmosphere where children can increase their knowledge about basketball, teamwork, and about themselves. Our goal is for every child to walk out of the gym with a smile on their face. This clinic offers participants opportunities to exercise, develop social skills through peer interaction, and learn the game in a positive and fun environment.

Registration for GonnawannaSWISHagin' begins in March

Rotary Club Birthday Program

The kind folks from the Cape Henry Rotary Club want to make sure that all of our FACT kids get a birthday party. They will be bringing cakes to our Family Socials for us to celebrate all the birthdays of the month. If your child would like to participate, please email camp4autism.com with your child's name and birthday.

Email notifications

Due to the increase in the number of programs FACT hosts and the amount of daily mailing list changes, we will no longer be sending program, event, and registration notifications to individual email addresses. All important updates and announcements will be included in the monthly newsletter sent by this software. All newsletters will have direct links to relevant registration pages as well as links to program information. Each newsletter will also include a "Coming Up" section at the bottom, which will be a quick-glance reference to upcoming events. In addition,  camp4autism.com  will supply you with up-to-date information.
