If you are interested in Camp FRIEND 2023, please fill out our Camp FRIEND Interest Form by June 15th or until camper spots have been filled. We will notify parents when to fill out the full camper application and to submit payment. Filling out the camp interest form and/or full camper application does not guarantee acceptance. Camp FRIEND has visual and behavioral supports, however, Camp FRIEND is unable to accept individuals with severe behaviors or aggression. This is due to the camp being a 2:1 camper-to-staff ratio not a 1:1. We also do not have space to keep these campers safe and others safe. We can provide ABA therapy provider recommendations if needed. Camp Interest Form:
