Summer Camperships

print



The Medina County Board of Developmental Disabilities (MCBDD) believes that people with developmental disabilities should have the chance to learn, grow, develop friendships, and gain confidence through the experience of summer camp.

This is why we are happy to provide “camperships” for adults with developmental disabilities to attend the summer camp of their choice. You choose the camp that best meets your needs; we help by providing financial support for you to attend.







The Basics

Camperships are available to adults who …
  • are not enrolled in a school program
  • live in Medina County
  • have been determined eligible for County Board services
  • are not currently receiving Medicaid Waiver funding

Camperships are up to $300 each with a limit of one (1) per individual.

  • They must be used for summer programs only.  
  • There are a limited number of camperships available and they are awarded on a first come, first served basis.
  • Campership requests will be taken until June 1, each year.
  • If an individual has a waiver, s/he will not be eligible for a campership. Please use the waiver as appropriate for summer services. Contact your SSA for information.

Additional Help
In addition to camperships, you may also be able to use Family Support Services (FSS) funds you have available to attend camp programs or camp transportation. If campership and FSS funding is to be used for camp, campership funding will be applied first then the FSS co-pay (if applicable) will be deducted with the remaining balance coming out of the FSS funds (up to allotment amount).

Choosing a Camp
