Responding to special needs

Under the Vacances-Été Program, your child may be eligible for a companion to facilitate his or her participation in day camp activities. You must request an application form from the Saint-Roch YMCA Community Office. The completed form must be submitted to the organization by April 1, 2019. Applications received after this date will be considered based on the capacity of the day camp, the possibility of pairing up campers, and the feasibility of providing safe and high-quality support.

A committee will evaluate your child’s need for a companion based on certain criteria. You will receive the committee’s decision within 30 days of the application deadline. The City supports integrating children with special needs into day camp activities. However, if the integration of a child requires specific measures that the camp is unable to take, parents will be referred to an organization that offers adapted recreation services at no extra charge.
