1. Where will camp be held this summer?

Camp will be held at The Bridge School. We will utilize the facilities of Bridge School and North Elementary, with whom we share a campus. The Bridge School is located in Hillsborough, CA. It is approximately 15 minutes from the San Francisco airport. Click here for directions.

2. Why isn't camp overnight this year?

The Bridge School determined that it needed to find another camp program with which to partner. We were not able to establish a new partnership in time for summer 2016. Our sincere hope is to be able to offer an overnight camp experience for the summer of 2017.

3. Can a parent attend Building Bridges Camp with their child?

THIS SUMMER parents are invited to attend the Training Institute while their children attend the camp. Parents may attend the training institute if they have child care for the hours that camp is not in session (Saturday and Sunday, Monday - Thursday 12:30 to 6:00pm). Typically we do not allow parents to attend the sleep-away summer camp. This is a special situation because of the day-camp format this year. Please contact us if this is something you would like to do.

4. When is camp?

For Campers (children who use AAC and siblings): Monday, June 20th to Friday, June 24, 2016 - 9:30AM to 12:30PM

For Trainers: Saturday, June 18th to Friday, June 24, 2016 - 9:00AM to 6PM (9AM-1PM on Friday)

5. How much does camp cost?

Camper (AAC User) $ 500.00

Sibling Camper $ 350.00

Training Institute Participant (adult) $1,200.00

8. Are there scholarships?

The Bridge School is fortunate enough to have generous donations to fund partial scholarships. These funds are available to provide scholarships to offset the costs of camp for those who demonstrate need. Applications for scholarships are included in the registration packet available once you have completed the initial online application.

7. How old does my child have to be to attend the camp?

Campers can begin attending camp as early as 5 years, and can attend through their 17th birthday.

8. What is a "Trainer"?

A Trainer is attending the Training Institute portion of camp. This person is NOT responsible for physical care of the campers (unless the trainer is attending with your child). Trainers attend activities with the campers in the morning and attend trainings held in the afternoon.

9. Who is responsible for the physical care of my child while at camp?

The Trainer attending with your child will be responsible for their physical care during the camp session. If your child is not attending with a trainer who knows them we will have staff who are employees and trained by The Bridge School in personal care.

10. Where can we stay near The Bridge School?

We are currently investigating options for hotels near The Bridge School. We will share more information as it becomes available.
