We are looking forward to a fun-filled 2019 summer camp and can’t wait to see all of you. Due to federal regulatory changes, there will be a few things different at camp this year:
Due to the increase in minimum wage, we will be changing our service delivery from one-on-one to intense supervision. We will no longer be able to offer one-on-one support. However, for those campers needing additional assistance, the new intense supervision staffing will meet individual behavior needs, and provide personal care and locker room assistance at a staffing ratio of up to 1:4.
Complete Dial-A-Ride Application
The Arc and Ben Franklin Transit have a longstanding partnership and we are grateful for all of their help over the years. Increased federal requirements have affected our ability to transport campers this year. The ability to provide door-to-door service and utilize vans during camp hours will depend on Dial-A-Ride eligibility. This means EVERY camper must be Dial-A-Ride eligible in order to attend camp.
Dial-A-Ride has a minimum 21-day review period, but could take up to three months. The entire application process will take extra time and effort this year, therefore we are asking all families to complete the PNP application as well as the Dial-A-Ride application and have both submitted to The Arc NO LATER THAN MARCH 26TH.
Please understand obtaining Dial-A-Ride eligibility can be difficult for families who have never applied. Workshops will be put on to assist families in this process on January 23rd, February 27th and March 11th from 5:30-6:30. You must attend a workshop prior to submitting your camp application.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation. We look forward to hearing from you.
