The $95 ‘Program Fee’ is a fee charged to each day camper in order to cover a portion of his or her expenses. There is approximately $150 of program expense for each week of day camp for each day camper that is not reimbursable through the Level One, Individual Options, and Self Waivers. This expense is comprised of several items such as non-direct care staff (including lifeguards, high ropes instructors, and nurses), supplies (such as daily arts/crafts projects, journals, first aid equipment) and the daily lunches and snacks. Scholarship funds may be available to cover the program fee for qualifying campers.

We are doing everything possible to hire and train the best team to provide the level of care that each of our camp participants needs and deserves.

Five Weeks of Summer Day Camp Offered

Summer Day Camps are open to youth and teens (ages 5–22) with developmental and/or physical disabilities and health concerns, as well as their siblings without disabilities. This inclusive experience allows typical siblings to attend camp together and promotes growth in a fun and challenging environment. Recreation Unlimited is a smoke free campus.

Ages for Youth Day Camps are 5 – 12 Years old.
Ages for Teen Day Camps are 13 – 22 years old.

Summer Day Camps provide a full schedule of activities, lunch and snack, counselors, program leaders, on-site nursing care and a new adventure every day. 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. Summer Day Camps are Monday through Friday. Arrival time is 9:00 a.m. and departure time is 4:00 p.m. daily.

Fees and Funding

The 2024 Summer Day Camp published rate at this time is $355.00 per week (may change due to camper’s individualized needs), plus if the registration and application is completed online, a one-time, annual registration fee of $35 will be required. If you prefer to fill out and mail in a paper registration and application, a one-time, annual registration fee of $45 will be required.

Campers may qualify for financial assistance from county or state agencies, or local service organizations.  Level One Waiver, Individual Options Waiver and SELF Waiver may also be used to pay your camp fees. Please contact your service coordinator to have camp fees added to your Individual Service Plan. Otherwise, contact the relevant government agency or local service organization for specific funding information. Due to the decreased amount of reimbursement rates for Level One, Individual Options, and SELF Waivers, Recreation Unlimited is no longer able to absorb all of the costs that have never been covered by the waivers.  As such, campers using a waiver to pay for camp will be responsible for a Program Fee of $95.00. Scholarship funding for the program fee may be available.


Acceptance to camp is based on review and approval of the camper application, physical form completed and signed by your physician, and camp capacities.  Level One Waiver, Individual Options Waiver, Self Waiver and Family Resources money cannot be used to pay the one-time, annual registration fee of $35/$45.
