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 program has been running for over 20 years.


The group meets each Saturday afternoon.The group goes swimming and then returns for crafts, games and music.The group also goes on various outings (movies, bowling, museums, etc.) throughout the year.


Most of the participants require some “one on one” assistance or direction through the program.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.
