“The Division of Developmental Disabilities’ (DDD) Family Support program may be able to offer some assistance with payment for camp. As with all DDD services, funding for camp is based on available resources. Families are encouraged to first seek assistance for paying with camp by contacting local town recreation departments and civic groups, such as the Elks, Shriners, etc.
The deadline for submitting requests for DDD camp funding is the first Monday in May.”
