If you are interested in Camp FRIEND 2024, please fill out our Camp FRIEND Interest Form by May 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 due to it having a general community setting and not a therapy or school setting. We also do not have space to keep these campers and others safe. Our camp is staffed at a 2:1 camper-to-staff ratio. We can provide ABA therapy provider recommendations if needed.
