AIM will offer a summer day camp for children ages 9-13 who have developmental disabilities in late August.
AIM already offers day camps for youths ages 14-21 each summer, but this will be the first time we've offered the program for the younger age group.
Called Tween Camp BRAVO, the camp will be held from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. daily on Monday, Aug. 26 through Friday, Aug. 30. The camp will be based at the Elmira AIM offices, 350 W. Church St., but will include many fun, educational outings in the community, such as animal and nature-themed activities.
These camps are open to youths who live at home and have eligibility for services through the NYS Office for People with Developmental Disabilities.
Participants should be independent with personal care needs or escorted by a caregiver or self-directed staff. The camps are either free or billed to OPWDD self-directed budgets.
Funding is provided by OPWDD Family Support Services.
