Summer Scheme

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 10-17years with moderate to severe learning difficulties with 1:1 support provided.

Summer Fun is for autistic young people aged 10-17 years with lower support needs. Ratio of support is approximately 1:4.

This year’s summer schemes are now fully booked. Details of next year’s scheme will be published in early 2023. 

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.
