Adaptive SUMMER Camps

adaptive summer camp programs

Register Online

Adaptive Camp Registration begins March 2. These camps are for youth/young adults who need more support than a traditional summer camp can provide. Open to city and county residents. Participants will be expected to manage their own behaviors with minimal staff intervention and must have a desire to participate in programming. Camp operations are subject to change due to COVID-19. 

Camps Crow, Henry, and Nature Arts:  participants requiring 1:1 assistance are welcome to come with their own aide. The aide serves as a “volunteer” and must adhere to department volunteer policies/procedures, which may include completion of a criminal background check. 

The Inclusion Program is designed to help campers with special needs participate in a traditional camp program. For more information, contact Adaptive Recreation.

Acceptance to Adaptive Recreation Summer Camps is based on a review of the camper application by the Adaptive Recreation supervisor and camp director. Decisions are made considering the age of the camper; social, emotional, and physical needs of the camper; and staffing ratios. 

Each registrant will receive a follow-up phone call from Adaptive staff and a form that will provide us with more in-depth information about the camper.

ePACT Network - Emergency Contact Software

Charlottesville Parks & Recreation is proud to announce our adoption of ePACT Network for better safety! ePACT is a secure emergency network, that we will use to collect medical and emergency contact information electronically. Not only will ePACT replace paper forms, but it will also ensure we have a way to communicate with you in the event of an unexpected situation.

WHY ARE WE USING EPACT?

  • To save you time - With ePACT, you only need to complete your child’s information once, and can then use that same record for other programs or subsequent years
  • Improved privacy and security – Eliminating paper forms ensures that your key information is safe and secure. ePACT maintains the same levels of security as online banking, and limits access only to the administrators we assign for enhanced privacy.
  • Better support – ePACT makes it easy for you to share comprehensive health and emergency contact details, so we can provide the best support to your child. Plus, you can update this anytime and we will automatically receive those new details.

HOW IT WORKS

  • You’ll receive an email invite to share information with Charlottesville Parks & Recreation.
  • Click ‘Complete Request’ to create a free account, or log-in if you already have an existing ePACT account.
  • Enter the required information, like medical conditions, and share it with Charlottesville Parks & Recreation so that program staff have access.
  • For ePACT assistance, please review their informational packet »
