I CAN Camp (Young Adults): 13-15 March

This camp enabled young people on the Autism Spectrum to enable others to say ‘I Can’ to life’s opportunities, all from the horse’s mouth!

– Daniel Giles, I CAN Ambassador

Have fun whilst challenging yourself

Build your confidence

Connect with others

I CAN Network’s young adults camp, hosted by I CAN’s tertiary networks, will empower young adults (aged 18 – 30) on the Autism Spectrum to live the ‘I Can’ attitude. It will equip participants with the confidence to be leaders in our growing network. I CAN’s Camps are unique. They are run entirely by young people on the Spectrum for young people on the Spectrum. Here’s some of what you will get up to on camp:

  • Games and random fun
  • Team-building/ outdoor activities, including a bonfire
  • Expressing I CAN’ – an exhibition of the ‘I Can’ attitude made by participants’ writing, drawing, music and construction
  • Mentoring Master Class (an optional workshop for those young people ready and willing to take their mentoring or uni network to the next step)
  • TEDxICAN – a showcase of ideas supporting the #AWEtismRethink
  • AWE Ball (Theme: ‘Dress to Obsess’) – don your favourite obsession on the Saturday evening!
  • ‘I CAN’ Talks – talks delivered by participants on what they’re going to say ‘I Can’ to


Register your interest by 25 February. After registering interest, one of our Camp Mentors* will give you a call where you will hear more about the I CAN Camps and the process of completing registration. Please note that the camp costs $150.
