Registration is open!! Summer 2017 Dates: June 25th- July 1st
Camper Eligibility The following is a list of eligibility criteria for a child to attend Camp Abilities Brockport. Please read carefully before registering your child for Camp Abilities.
Children who attend Camp Abilities Brockport must possess the following in order to participate:
Are between the ages of 9-19
They have a visual impairment (must have a vision teacher)
They are predominantly independent (helping with tying shoes, bathing, toileting, or picking clothes is fine)
They possess verbal or sign communication skills appropriate within 2 years of their age
They display behaviors that allow them to function in a group setting that does not affect other group members (no biting, kicking, displays of defiant behavior, running away)
They do not possess a medical problem that requires a nurse for constant supervision. (We only have 2 nurses and with over 50 campers we cannot afford to have a child that requires all of their time;)
Parents must disclose ALL necessary information that will allow us to provide a safe environment for the child’s week at Camp Abilities Brockport.
Athletes will be ineligible, and be sent home if they display the following:
Medical needs that require constant nursing supervision or communicable diseases
Defiant or conduct disorders
Mobility limitations that prohibit them from ambulating 1/2 mile or inability to participate in the sport activities
If you have any questions related to the above criteria please contact us. If you know that your child is not eligible please consider other camps.
WE, THE ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF AT CAMP ABILITIES BROCKPORT, HAVE THE POWER TO SEND YOUR CHILD HOME IF THE CONDITIONS OF CAMP ELIGIBILITY ARE NOT MET.
If you are a camper from New York State please contact your child’s consultant from the Commission for the Blind before you register to ensure there is funding available.
