Frequently asked Questions
Campers will receive a ‘camp-in-a-box’ care package mailed to your house. It will be filled with instructions & supplies for a variety of fun activities you can complete independently or that we will do together online.
We’ve spent A LOT of time online this year so most of the independent activities are designed to get you outside and active…but we will meet virtually for 1-2 hours a day to play games, complete activities and hangout as a camp community.
You can sign up for just 1 week or participate in all 4 weeks! Each week will offer new & different activities/games/projects from the week before.
Session 1: Monday, July 5th to Friday, July 9th, 2021
Session 2/M.I.L.E.S. Week*: Monday, July 12th to Friday, July 16th, 2021
[*Session 2 is designated ‘M.I.L.E.S. WEEK’ for campers 14-18 years. M.I.L.E.S. stands for Motivation. Independence. Leadership. Empowerment. and Skills. It is a special session we typically run at camp that we are offering specifically to our teen campers this summer. There will be camp-in-a-box activities, virtual hangouts PLUS fun and useful online learning on topics like resume writing, mental health first aid, a Career Day with camp alumni…and more!]
Session 3: Monday, July 19th to Friday, July 23rd, 2021
Session 4: Monday, July 26th to Friday, July 30th, 2021
Parents/Guardians, we have tried our best to ensure that most activities require very little supervision. We know everyone has different availabilities and prior commitments, so we’re hoping to engage your camper in independent fun. That being said, some of the activities (i.e recipes or going on nature walks) will require adult supervision.
For summer 2021 we’re opening this virtual program to anyone 9-18 years of age with a physical disability – plus their friends and siblings in the same age range.
We are simply asking you to “contribute-what-you-can”.
Camp Awakening is a small charity and we have experienced significant financial loss due to the pandemic and not being able to run our traditional in-person camp programs since summer 2019. Any amount, small or big, to help offset the cost of shipping & materials is so appreciated.
It’s been a tough year, so please know that we will not be turning away
anyone who is eligible and interested in participating.
