Year Round
Respite Weekend Billing
Information For Individual
Options Waiver, Self
Waiver and Level
One Waiver

Please be advised that effective October 1, 2011, the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) has implemented a new service, Community Respite, for camps and campers that pay for camp service through the Individual Options Waiver and Self Waiver.  In addition, effective October 1, 2013, the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) has implemented a new service, Community Respite, for camps and campers that pay for camp service through the Level One Waiver.

Therefore, please note the following important DODD mandated change in billing procedures for the Individual Options Waiver, Self Waiver and Level One Waiver as it relates to a Recreation Unlimited Farm and Fun, Inc. (Recreation Unlimited) Year Round Respite Weekend camp. 

If you have a camper who is on the Individual Options Waiver, Self Waiver or Level One Waiver (as of October 1, 2013) and will be attending a Recreation Unlimited Year Round Respite Weekend camp, Recreation Unlimited will bill two (2) full day Community Respite units (ARN for Individual Options Waiver and FRN for Level One Waiver, SRN for Self Waiver) per weekend camp, plus a $75 room and board allowance that is not a billable waiver service and is the responsibility of each individual camper to pay.  (Click here for information on a Room and Board Scholarship Program for Individual Options, Self Waiver and Level One Waiver participants.) This additional charge is due to the decrease in reimbursement rates that Recreation Unlimited will receive from the DODD through this Community Respite service, in order that we maintain a quality camping experience.  Please adjust your camper’s PAWS to reflect this billing change.  Per the DODD, we will be unable to accept HPC billing for the Individual Options Waiver and Self Waiver after October 1, 2011 and Level
One Waiver after
October 1, 2013.
 
Please contact Michelle Higgins with questions regarding your camper’s scheduled attendance at Recreation Unlimited.  Please contact DODD for questions regarding PAWs and these mandated billing procedures.  Thank you for your help with this change as we continue to comply with the DODD and offer outstanding service to individuals with disabilities and health concerns through the Individual Options Waiver, Self Waiver and Level One Waiver.

Year Round Respite
Weekend Camps

In 2018, we are offering seven weekend camps for youth (ages 8-22) and eight weekend camps for adults (ages 23 and up). Please see the list of scheduled camp dates below for the remaining 2017 camps. Recreation Unlimited is a smoke free campus.

Respite Weekend Camps provide a full schedule of activities, lodging, meals and snacks, counselors, program leaders, on-site nursing and a great environment for indoor and outdoor fun! Examples of program activities include swimming, fishing, canoeing, climbing, sports, archery, creekin', nature exploration, arts
and crafts, cooking, theater, campfire,
dancing and more!


A fully equipped Health Services Center and Nurses Quarters with a team of nurses that administer all camper medications and medical treatments are provided. All meals and snacks are provided with healthy choices available. Special diets can be accommodated. Items such as Recreation Unlimited sweatshirts and t-shirts are available at the camp store for purchase that enables the campers to go home with a souvenir from camp.

Respite Weekend Camps are Friday through Sunday. Camper arrival time is Friday from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Camper departure time is Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to noon. All campers must be picked up by noon.

Fees and Funding
The Respite Weekend
Camp published
rate is
$412 per
weekend camp
(may change due
to camper's individualized
needs), plus an annual
reservation
fee of
$35 that must
accompany the
registration form.

Recreation Unlimited is an Individual Options Waiver, Self Waiver, Level One Waiver (see new billing information for Individual Options, Self and Level One Waivers in the left hand column for the Year Round Respite Weekend Camp), and Ohio Home Care/Transition Waiver provider.

Please inform your service coordinator of the dates that you have registered for camp and submit a request for service prior to coming to camp so that camp fees will become part of your service plan. You will be responsible for payment of any camp that is not included on your service plan.

Send in Your Registration
Registrations are held on a

first-come, first-served basis.
You may sign up for as many
weekends as you would like,
but space is limited. After you
send in your registration and
reservation fee, a camper
application packet, including
physical form will be sent
to you for completion. Due

to high demands and the need for proper planning, if the camper application packet, including physical form signed by your physician and financial information, is not returned three weeks prior to your camp date, you will lose your camp slot. However, final acceptance to camp is based on review and approval of the camper application, physical form completed and signed by your physician, and camp capacities.

Individual Options, Level One, Self, and Ohio Home Care/Transition Waivers and Family Resources money cannot be used to pay the $35 non-refundable reservation fee.
