We are so excited to be able to offer an in-person Camp STRIVE for Summer 2021. Due to the ongoing pandemic, though, Camp will look fairly different this year. Since we have several other PSL Services/STRIVE programs that share our space, and due to the CDC limits on how many people can be in our building, Camp will be held outside under a large tent this summer. We will be center-based for both the morning and afternoon sessions, so we will not be taking trips into the community as we normally would. The tent has removable walls - so we can zip them on during inclement weather, and take them off on hotter and sunnier days. We will have outdoor restrooms (including an accessible option) provided for our campers and staff. Both campers and staff will need to be wearing masks for the full day, other than when eating lunch, and during designated "mask breaks" which we will implement throughout the day.
We will be following all CDC and DHHS guidelines to ensure the safest experience possible, and will certainly adapt Camp's structure and programming as the summer progresses as those guidelines change throughout the summer.
To keep Camp as safe as possible, we are setting a maximum of 10 campers per day - and registration for each session will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Please make sure when registering your camper that you indicate which days, if any, you would like to be "half-days" (meaning only registering for a morning or afternoon session), so we can ensure there are 10 spots open for both sessions. Campers are welcome to attend Camp with their BHP or support staff - please let us know in the registration notes if your camper will be attending with support, and on which days, if so.
The deadline to register your camper will be Friday, May 14th at 4:00pm. This year, we are asking that families make a $210 deposit to hold their campers spot. However, if you wish to attend for a total of less than five days throughout the entire summer, you can make a deposit of your exact daily amount). Payment will be due each Monday for the weeks you wish to attend, and we can not offer refunds for any days missed or cancelled in a given week.
Upon filling out the registration form, you will be brought to a page to make your deposit. Please note your registration will not be solidified until we receive the deposit.
We will not be able to accept registrations or sign-ups beyond that date - and will not be able to have day-of sign-ups or drop-off's this summer. Please note that if we do not receive enough registrations, we may not be able to host Camp STRIVE this summer.
