FSCD Funding Changes 2022

A message from FSCD:

Parents can request up to two weeks of specialized camp, however, camp approval is based on the assessed need for extraordinary respite needs over the summer. There are several factors that will be taken into consideration, so not all families within the FSCD program will be assessed for camp.

Qualifying for camp funding is based on the assessed needs and not just because a family would like their child to attend. In addition, ALL camp requests must be made by the family/guardian to their FSCD caseworker and must be approved before the camp starts. FSCD is not accepting any camp requests directly from agencies this year and will not backdate payment for services if the family chooses to send their child to camp without prior FSCD approval.
