Summer Day Camp FAQ's

Q: What will my camper be doing at camp?

A: DSAW’s summer respite day camp will involve a variety of activities and field trips. Activities are planned to meet camper needs and are weather-permitting. Campers will practice life skills, social skills, cooking, reading, and more. We will share a more detailed curriculum as the summer gets closer!

Q: My child has a food allergy. Will this be a problem at camp?

A: Nope! For the most part, you will be sending along a bag lunch with your child. Please indicate any allergies in your application, and we will ensure that your child stays safe during camp. When we are practicing cooking or going out to eat, we will accommodate your child’s dietary needs.

Q: Who are the volunteers and staff working with my child?

A: All staff members and volunteers working at camp will be background checked by DSAW-Family Services. Family Services staff will be designing the curriculum and leading the camp, and Counselors in Training are peers who have interviewed and been selected to be a part of the camp experience.

Q: Who should I reach out to if I have specific questions?

A: If you have a question, please email Chris at
