Summer Respite

Dates: June 28 - July 3, 2020
Program Fee: $799 per camper

Offering a classic Camp Pecometh experience to campers with intellectual disabilities. A traditional program focusing on summer recreation - swimming, arts & crafts, canoeing, music and more - plus the highlight of the week: a celebratory 4th of July-themed dance! The camper/counselor ratio is 3:1 to ensure that all campers receive high levels of care and attention. Campers will stay in our air conditioned dormitory-style retreat houses. Space is limited.

What are the minimum requirements for Respite campers?

Our program is not designed to accommodate Respite campers requiring 1:1 care in the camp setting, use of a wheelchair, or diapering. Please email Camp Programs Coordinator Megan Sweeney or call 410-556-6900 to discuss if our program is the right fit for your camper.
