Funds are limited and to apply for this service, you must contact the camp director prior to registering. All children will be assessed in order to ensure we can respond their needs.

  • Registering a child who has a disability, without indication, inhibits the staff from providing proper integration of the child and can lead to the cancellation of your child’s registration. We have limited resources and funds available and only receive confirmation of the yearly grant in mid June; therefore registration will be pending until confirmed by the DDC Director.
  • The camp’s aim is to offer a dynamic and secure service to all the children.
