***Families of children with special needs that require a support worker at camp are not eligible for online registration. Please submit a hard copy registration form and registration package to the front desk at Frank Kennedy Centre.
We are excited to share with you the options for participation of children with special needs at Mini U! We now have more options than ever, designed to provide your child with a positive camp experience.
We employ a team of both male and female support workers. In addition to our week long training session, some staff have extensive experience working with children with special needs. Others have undergone our training program but may have limited experience working one on one with children with special needs. The support staff work from 8:30am – 4:30pm in July and August.
Please check out the options for your child listed below and then read through the Registration Package for more information. All registrations for children with special needs will be accepted as of March 18, 2013 and must be submitted by hard copy. Processing will take approx 7 days. Online registration is not available.
Program Options for Children with Special Needs
Option 1: Children will participate in a typical Mini U group for the entire day, without the assistance of a one on one support worker. This option will typically be chosen by families of children with special needs who do not have a support worker at school.
Option 2: Children will participate (with the assistance of a one on one support staff) with a typical Mini U group. This option is designed for children who will be able to participate with the group for at least 60% of the day. Mini U express not available when this option is selected.
Option 3: My child will be the most successful participating with a one on one support worker in our new Movement Camp for Children with Special Needs. Mini U express not available when this option is selected.
We have a limited number of support workers available each week. The chart is not live but is current as of the date on the chart. Please use this as a general guide when planning your summer registrations. All spots are assigned on a first come first serve basis and applications will be processed in the order in which they are received.
