CAMPER SUPPORT AT THE CAMP COMBE YMCA
We believe that EVERY child deserves the chance to experience the joy and magic of summer camp.
We also believe that the full inclusion of children with developmental, social, emotional, behavioral, and/or medical special needs enhances and enriches our community for ALL children. Because of this, we do everything in our power to make sure that our programs are accessible to all children, regardless of ability level. Our Camper Support Staff have the knowledge and experience to help every child through the day, making new friends and having F-U-N!
NYS made some big changes back in 2017
Before registering for programs with the Camp Combe YMCA, parents of children with special needs should note the need to provide an aide, who must function in a one-on-one capacity with their child, in the following circumstances:
For a camper who uses adaptive equipment or bracing to achieve ambulation, but who do not possess the ability to fit, secure or independently manipulate such devices satisfactorily must have a one-on-one throughout the camp day.
For a camper who is non-ambulatory or has a disability that may result in an increased risk of an emergency in the water must have a one-on-one during swim time. Please note that occasionally unscheduled swim time occurs without notice, such as double-swim periods due to excessive heat.
Thank you for your understanding that this is due to New York State Department of Health changes. We welcome your pre-summer visit to discuss your child’s individual needs with our Camp Director.
If you would like to know more about our Camper Support department, or have questions about whether Camp Combe would be a good fit for your child, please do not hesitate to call us at 845-526-0808.
