Conference registration covers the cost of camp. If you wish your son or daughter to have 1:1 supervision in camp, this is available for an additional fee with the camp company.
CKE does not handle any medical issues such as g-tube feedings, suctioning, etc. There will be one nurse available for emergencies at camp. You will be able to go down to camp and give tube feedings, etc. and personal nurses or caregivers (over age 18) are allowed in camp, but they need to be registered for conference. The minimum age for camp is 8 weeks.
There will be two Camp Options:
Camp Discovery – Less staff per # of campers.
Camp Explorer – more structure and more staff per # of campers.
Participants for both camps will be together for certain fun activities.
There will be a professionally-staffed calm room containing sensory items and a soothing atmosphere which will be available if campers need a space/time to calm down.
We are thrilled to have Camp Abilities back running a program throughout the conference. Our campers will have the opportunity to try different sports and activities led by Dr. Lauren Lieberman, Dr. Pamela Haibach-Beach, Dr. Beth Foster and a staff of professionals from the fields of physical and special education!
Sign Language Interpreting at Camp
Please note that sign language interpretation will be offered for those attending conference sessions. You will indicate sign language interpretation needed on conference registration form. Interpretation is NOT offered in camp, however, there will be interpreters “roaming” camp to assist camp company. There might also be some camp volunteers who know sign language.
