Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
No. We understand that this camp experience would be beneficial for parents, however, this camp program is not designed for parents to attend. We focus our training on supporting students in classrooms and school environments. The "trainers" that attend have similar goals, in that they are responsible for implementing curriculum for students who use AAC.
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)
Camper (AAC User) $ 500.00
Sibling Camper $ 350.00
Training Institute Participant (adult) $1,200.00
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.
Campers can begin attending camp as early as 5 years, and can attend through their 17th birthday.
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.
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.
We are currently investigating options for hotels near The Bridge School. We will share more information as it becomes available.
