If you are unable to attend the meeting, please use the contact information provided with the camp to obtain information that will be distributed at the meeting.
Inclusion Services supports access to typical programs by offering reasonable and appropriate resources to participants with disabilities or medical conditions who register for those programs. Resources may include but are not limited to: gathering participant-specific information from parent/guardian/service provider; providing supportive materials; providing program or site-specific training; and/or providing additional staffing for the program. Participants who indicate a disability or medical condition AND request an accommodation will be contacted by Inclusion Services for follow-up. Additional forms may be requested for Inclusion Services to better understand the participant’s needs. Participants who indicate a disability or medical condition and do NOT request an accommodation will NOT be contacted by Inclusion Services. Participants requiring a more intensive level of support may consider having their own personal assistant attend the program. (Assistants, volunteers, therapists, or other providers are required to complete a background check and information forms before attending the program). To ensure that adequate resources are in place for the participant, registration should be received at least two weeks prior to the start date of the program. Please contact Inclusion Services at 919-996-2147 for more information or to request an accommodation.
