What Does a Respite Program Look Like?

  • We leave from our head offices at 1807 St. Joseph Blvd., Unit #307, Orleans, Ontario at 5 p.m. on the Friday of the respite weekend and we return at 5 p.m. on the Sunday of the respite weekend.
  • The basic camper/staff ratio is 3:1.
  • Special arrangements for 1:1 staffing for specific campers can be arranged as needed, for an additional cost.
  • The weekend away program can accommodate 10-15 clients at one time.
  • Arrangements for pick-up at home made be made on a case by case basis for an additional cost.

Benefits of This Respite Model

  • Year-round availability.
  • Client may experience more positive reaction to “going to camp” than going to a respite home.
  • Flexibility of program: Due to the low camper/staff ratio the program can be tailored to meet the needs of each individual camper in order to ensure a good time is had by all!
  • Last minute referrals to the program may be considered in emergencies.
