Residential Summer Camp

The joy, camaraderie, and personal growth of summer camp is something almost all of us have experienced and will remember the rest of our lives.  Unfortunately, for people with disabilities, the opportunity to take part in this summer tradition is almost non-existent.  Camp Stand By Me provides this special experience with a fully accessible, adaptive camp facility, and low counselor to camper ratios.

Our summer schedule typically includes:

Counselor to Camper Ratio Descriptions:

Session Recommendations:

1:1 to 1:2 sessions are ideal for campers who thrive on sensory integration activities and/or who need constant interaction from a staff member in order to engage in camp activities.  1:2 to 1:3 sessions are ideal for campers who interact with other campers but need staff facilitation in order to maximize these interactions.  There will be some sensory activities as well as some team or group activities.  1:3 sessions are ideal for campers who are able to participate in activities independently and who enjoy group interactions.

Our summer sessions fill up fast, visit the registration page starting 12/5/16 at 7:00pm to sign up!


Weekend Respite Camps

The awesome responsibility of caring for children and adults with disabilities rests squarely on the shoulders of their families.  Oftentimes, the enormous energy and resources necessary to care for someone with disabilities deprives caregivers of any time to themselves while leaving other family members feeling neglected.  Camp Stand By Me tries to share this responsibility with families and lighten their loads through Respite Services.

Join us for a Weekend Respite Camp, offered two weekends a month during the school year.  Campers enjoy many of the great summer activities as well as seasonal favorites.  Respite Camps are a great opportunity for first time campers to try Camp Stand By Me before coming for a full week of Summer Camp.

Cost of Respite is $405 per session.  Sessions are three days and two nights.
