We are happy to announce that we are now accepting applications for the Camp C.A.R.E. Respite Program – Summer 2018. All of us here at Bayside are looking forward to another successful camp! Camp C.A.R.E. will again be held at Cecil Community Center Park, 17 Wilson Road, Rising Sun, Maryland.
Any Cecil County student with a diagnosed developmental disability enrolled as a full-day student during the previous school year, age 6 to 20, is eligible to apply for the Camp C.A.R.E. Respite Program. Applicants will go through a selection process to insure appropriateness for the camp and that they meet the requirements of the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Administration. Following the review process, acceptance notices will be emailed to the applicants selected for the camp program. Acceptance notices will include a complete Camper Information Packet, Health History Forms, releases, transportation schedule, fundraising packet and other pertinent information.
Individuals who need one-on-one staffing will be required to submit an additional application(s) for funding. If all other requirements are met, final acceptance into the program will be dependent on funding approval.
The camp features a fishing pond, baseball fields, batting cage, tennis courts, playground, indoor air-conditioned space and lots of open level outdoor space. Swimming will be at Conowingo Pool. Field trips and activities are tentatively scheduled for Regal Cinema Movies, Plumpton Park Zoo, Monster Wave Slide, Elk Lanes Bowling, and our annual trip to Six Flags America!
It is again our privilege to sponsor the Camp C.A.R.E. program for 2018. We enjoy working with every camper and their family. As always, the camp is backed by our 46 years experience working with persons with special needs. If you have any questions about the camp or our agency, we welcome the opportunity to talk with you. Please call us at 443-245-3575. All of us here at Bayside envision for each individual happiness, fulfillment and value in living!
