Programs


Ausome Membership & Registration

Our Ausome programs are free to our members. We respectfully ask that you only sign up for programs that you can fully commit to,
as programs fill up quickly and you would be taking a space from another child.

Every participant will receive an Ausome Ottawa t-shirt and participant card at their first event.
Parents are not permitted in the program space, but can join other parents and caregivers in a separate area.

Our programs are supported wholly by our community. While you will not have to pay for the event, we will suggest a donation amount each time.
If you can contribute, please do — but be sure to note that this is not required. Learn more about membership here.

New Registration Policies:

Our Ausome programs are very popular with our members. We ask that you only sign up for one program at a time (ie if two programs
are running at the same time, choose one) so we can offer program spaces to as many Ausome kids as possible.

As programs fill up, we encourage you to join the waitlist. In order to serve as many Ausome families as possible,
participants on the waitlist will be given priority in registration the next time that program is running.
