Camp Connect is still accepting campers for this year!
Dates: August 10 – 15th
Where: Camp Manidokan in Knoxville, MD – we have a bus that goes from Baltimore Co DSS on York Rd. on Tuesday and back on Sunday
Who: ANY separated siblings with one sib in care ages 7 – 18 – others may be home with parent, or in a finalized adoption/guardianship home (even a sib group in recently finalized adoptive homes would be fine)
Cost: NONE – thanks to generous support from DHS
Staffing: Counselors are adult volunteers, primarily social workers from BCoDSS, one from Harford Co, and one from Frederick Co.
Note that Camp Connect is not equipped to serve physically and/or severely developmentally disabled youth, but because of the high counselor:camper ratio and the number of clinical social workers, behavioral challenges are not a barrier.
IMPORTANT! COVID-19 Immunizations are required for campers aged 12 and over. In order for it to be effective before the start of camp, they must be received no later than July 6th.
