Respite Weekend

This weekend will give campers a fun getaway while providing a time for caregivers to rest and recharge.   The weekend’s program is grounded in the Camp Blessing values of love, acceptance and fun is designed to be engaging yet at a slower pace than our high-energy summer camp programs.

  • All participants should have a diagnosis of having an intellectual and/or physical disability and be otherwise unable to attend a traditional youth camp.  
  • Weekend campers should be age 18-55
  • Free of physically aggressive behaviors and emotional disturbance disorders

Available spots: We will have 24 spots available, 12 male and 12 female.

  • Outdoor Games
  • Talent Show

Special Diets: Special diets will be available upon request

Cost: $250/camper  

Staff Ratios

This weekend we are attempting a slower pace and fewer activities.  In light of this program modification we will reduce our camper to staff ratio.  This ratio will be 2 campers for 1.5 staff/volunteers.
