Adaptive Recreation Summer Camps

Adaptive Camp Registration begins March 4. These camps are for youth/young adults who need more support than a traditional summer camp can provide. Open to city and county residents. Participants will be expected to manage their own behaviors with minimal staff intervention and must have a desire to participate in programming. Staff/camper ratio is one staff to five campers. Participants requiring 1:1 assistance are welcome with their own aide (serves as a “volunteer” and must adhere to department volunteer policies/procedures, which may include completion of a criminal background check). Acceptance to Adaptive Recreation Summer Camps is based on a review of the camper’s application by the Adaptive Recreation supervisor and camp director. Decisions are made considering age of camper; social, emotional and physical needs of camper; and staffing ratios.

Deadline for camper fees is May 15, 2019.

The Inclusion Program is designed to help campers with special needs participate in a traditional camp program. For more information, contact Sarah Blech at (434) 970-3264.
