INCLUSION

BECAUSE WE VALUE EVERY KID.

Our goal is to provide a camp environment that allows siblings both with exceptional needs and without to attend camp together.

If your child has additional mental, intellectual, physical or behavioural needs, we would love to be able to discuss these needs with you prior to camp starting. This will help us understand how you would like us to best support your child at camp, and make a plan for how this will happen, together. Please email us at camp@scriptureunion.ca for more information or to request a phone call from our Inclusion Coordinator.

**Requests must be received at least 2 weeks prior to the beginning of camp in order to ensure volunteer availability and adequate planning time.**

After submitting your request, you will receive a phone call from our Inclusion Coordinator who will discuss your child’s needs with you so that we can plan camp accordingly.  At this time, we will discuss the physical environment of the camp, as well as the individual needs of your child to ensure that we can meet these needs at our camp. Depending on your child’s needs, different levels of support may be available, including having an Inclusion Coach provided by Scripture Union Canada attend camp with your child.

** If your child has a tracheostomy, uses a ventilator, requires suctioning, feeds through a G or J tube, has frequent seizures, has aggressive behaviours that require constant 1:1 supervision, or requires assistance for toileting, you will need to send a support worker familiar with their care to camp.  This support worker will be required to pass the same screening process and criminal record check as other camp volunteers. **

If you wish to discuss camp before submitting a request for support, please call Jonathan Murray at (905) 427-4947 or send an email to camp@scriptureunion.ca
