Ready for a winter wonderland event? We are, so we connected with Merryland Organics to arrange some Sleigh Rides!!!

You'll arrive at Merryland between 1-1:30pm. When you arrive a team of horses and a sleigh will whisk you down to the bonefire where you can roast your own hotdog on the fire. Then you can take a trip in another sleigh through the farm and wilderness! When you get back you can relax at the fire with a hot chocolate and make a S'mores until you feel it's time to go home and a sleigh can shuttle you back to your car.

Our event runs from 1-3pm. Dress warmly!

Please note: Registration for this event begins on Thursday January 18, 2018 at 10:30am. Tickets will not be available until that time.

This event is open to children with ASD, their siblings, friends and caregivers only.

The Potential Programme has a no transfer of care policy and, as such, parents and/or caregivers are required to stay onsite for this event.

This is a rain or shine event.

General FAQ


1.) Do I need to print out ticket or email confirmations to attend this event?

For most of our events there is no need to print anything, unless the event specifies otherwise.  When you arrive at the event, you will have to check in at the registration desk.  You will be asked for your name and how many people are attending with you.  That's all.

2.) Do I need to bring proof of diagnosis?
No, not needed.  Again, just check in at the registration desk and enjoy the event.

3.) Is there a cost to attend this event?
Almost all of our events are free of charge because the cost is covered by Autism Ontario's Potential Programme, in partnership with Ontario’s Ministry of Children & Youth Services and the local Autism Ontario Chapter.  If there is a cost, you will see it on the registration page when you select how many ticket you want.

4.) Do I need to be a member of Autism Ontario to register and participate?
No.  While membership does provide other great opportunities, events provided through Autism Ontario’s Potential Programme are open to all families of children with ASD, under the age of 18, who reside in Ontario.
