A weekly schedule is given to guardians to accommodate for appropriate attire and supplies for activities. Generally, campers will need sunscreen, swimming trunks/suit, a towel, change of clothes, snacks and medication.

Camp assignment can be accommodated based on needs and interest of the child.

AM child care will be available for Tween & Teen campers who need to be dropped off prior to the 9:30am start of camp 7:30-9:30am. PM child care will be available for any camper who needs to be picked up after 4:30pm from 4:30-6:00pm. Both will be provided in the BRCC (lower level of The Arc)

How Much is tuition?

Tuition for each student is determined using a sliding scale that times into account family income level and size of household. Scholarships, grant programs and waiving funding are available to those who qualify.


Priority registration is open April 3rd-7th. Registration is open to the general public on April 10th. Registration will be closed once capacity for each location has been met or on April 28th. Contact the Camp Coordinator, Ryan Markle at The Arc
