We are very excited to announce the return of SCAMP this summer!! Based on current health updates and guidelines, we are confident we can safely operate SCAMP with a few adjustments. Below are some of the guidelines we have established to ensure a positive camp experience for Scampers and staff:
- We will follow current health guidelines including requiring staff and SCAMPers to wear masks (unless this guideline is adjusted by the Health Department prior to SCAMP starting)
- We will operate SCAMP at half capacity this year (100 vs 200 total SCAMPers), based on projected staffing and to accommodate social distancing to the maximum extent possible.
- WHEN: Monday through Wednesday, 9:00 to 2:00, June 28th to July 28th. Because July 4th falls on a Sunday this year, we will run SCAMP that week with the exception of Monday, July 5th off.
- WHERE: Clarkston Jr. High (6595 Waldon Rd.)
- The application process will be fully on-line this year.
- Applications will be accessible on the SCAMP website (clarkstonscamp.org) beginning Monday April 8th (NEW DATE!). Applications will be completed and submitted electronically. We will not be accepting paper copies of applications this year.
- Applications will be date stamped when we receive them. Due to operating SCAMP at half capacity this summer, we will accept applications based on the order we receive them (approximately half the slots will be reserved for Clarkston residents and half allotted for non-resident applicants). We will also offer first priority to SCAMPers who have attended in the past. We will create a waiting list once we have reached our maximum.
- Applications will be due no later than Friday, May 14, 2021
All it takes is one visit to Clarkston SCAMP and you will be hooked! Laughing, singing, swimming, running, hugs and dancing fill the air. SCAMP is a five-week program developed and designed for children and young adults with special needs.
The camp is more than just an exciting place for the SCAMPers; this program provides a growing and learning opportunity for both the young adults hired to be aides for the SCAMPers, as well as the volunteers. It provides the parents of the SCAMPers the calming effect of knowing that their child is in a safe haven and having a good time that they might not be able to experience any other way.
Do you know that a third of our budget comes from donors like you? Donations to our program may be made by clicking the button below. All gifts are tax-deductible within the limits of the law.
