Spectrum Adult Programs
Autism is a journey….
don’t take it alone. Adults on the spectrum need support, friendship and camaraderie just like everyone else. We are here for you and can help you find activities and a group that will welcome you, just as you are.
- Connect adults living with Autism.
- Share experiences and learn from others.
- Have an accepting group to help you celebrate life’s milestones and support you when things are tough.

iCan Bike Camp Volunteers Needed!
The iCan Shine Bike Camp is a week-long event that teaches riders with a variety of disabilities to ride a two-wheel bike confidently on their own. This is done using a fleet of specialized bicycles owned by iCan Shine.
Over the course of the five-day camp, the adapted bikes are adjusted to gradually introduce more instability in an effort to challenge riders at their own individual pace. Throughout the entire process, the riders and their volunteers grow together through the smiles and tears that these challenges bring. After many hours of laughter and learning, the week concludes with a touching and inspiring award ceremony.
The safety of iCan Bike Camp participants is dependent on lots of helping hands. Please consider giving the gift of time by volunteering as a spotter for one or more of the five sessions of the five-day camp. We promise this will be the most rewarding exercise you will ever experience!
