At Camp Jotoni our goal is to accommodate as many campers as possible who register for our respite weekends. In order to ensure that every camper gets the opportunity to attend a respite weekend, we have made some changes to our registration process. You may request to reserve a spot in one, two, or all three of our fall respite weekends.
At Camp Jotoni our mission is to provide recreation and respite services for children with developmental and intellectual disabilities. We are an ACA accredited summer camp with both day and residential sessions.
At Camp Jotoni we offer 6 week long sessions of day camp for both children and adults. Day camp runs Monday through Friday beginning at 9am and ending at 3pm. During those hours campers will experience nature, games, physical education, arts & crafts, music, swimming and lunch. Lunch is prepared on the premises and is included (Menus can be found under Camper Resources).
New this year, Camp Jotoni will be offering 1pm-5pm hours for campers that are enrolled in a half day extended school program. Contact Us for more information about this program.
Camp Jotoni will not provide transportation during weeks 2-7 of day camp. During these weeks we will offer flexibility to families in drop off and pick up times. Parents are able to drop off as early as 8am and pick up as late as 4pm at no additional charge.
Our residential program runs for the first 6 weeks concurrently with our day program. Campers can sign up for 5-day, 7-day or 13-day sessions allowing flexibility for families. In addition to our day camp activities, residential campers will participate in activities such as tie dying, outdoor movies, DJ Dance parties and more. Campers attending 13-day sessions will take part in an offsite trip such as a baseball game, bowling, zoo, or aquarium. Residential sessions are open to all ages for weeks 2-7. After signing up for a specific session, camp administration will inform families of movie in times the week prior to attending. All New Residential Camper applications must be received before June 1, 2017. Any new residential camper applications received after that date will be automatically be placed on a waiting list. Please Contact Us for more information. Check out Camper Resources for Packing Lists.
Weeks 8 and 9 are our Extended Camp weeks. These weeks are reserved for school age children only (21 and under) and are meant to bridge the gap between the end of the extended school year and the beginning of the new school year. As our most popular weeks parents are encouraged to sign up quickly as there are a limited number of spots. Please go to our Camper Resources section for more information regarding Perform Care funding for Camp Jotoni’s Extended Day Camp Program.
Camp Jotoni will provide transportation these three weeks. Any parents or families that want to take advantage of Camp Transportation must indicate so on their application and there will be a $50 per week fee. Camp Jotoni’s transportation is contracted through a local bus company and their will be one aide per bus. Camp Jotoni bus stops are group stops and every effort will be made to provide a bus stop near the address provided on the application. Contact Us for more information about Transportation.
At Camp Jotoni we strive to promote independence and our travel camp is meant to encourage choice making and self-confidence through recreational activities.
