Respite weekends are usually offered two weekends per month, September through April and one weekend in May, at $450 per session.
Weekend respite camp is a great short getaway for campers ages 16 and older, providing them the opportunity to make new friends and lifelong memories. Overnight weekend camp for adults with disabilities includes activities such as arts & crafts, sports, talent shows, campfires, dances, nature and sensory hikes, and much more!
NEW THIS YEAR – all campers will register as part of a respite weekend waitlist. There is a new form added that will allow you to request which sessions you are interested in. After an intake meeting with the camper, family, and camp staff, if the camper is accepted into the program, the camper will be registered for the sessions you selected, as long as space is still available.
Camp Cheerful accepts a variety of third-party funding sources that assist families in paying for camp and recreation services. If utilizing a waiver for the weekend, the waiver covers $348.26, leaving the family/self-pay portion of $101.74. The self-pay portion covers some of the costs associated with snacks and activities.
