2020 Camp Green Leaves
Camp Green Leaves is a summer day camp coordinated by the City of Burlington Recreation & Parks Department for children and adults with developmental disabilities. The camp schedule includes activity rotations in the outdoors, including swimming, arts and crafts, music, sports and games, and supervised free time. The camp also features daily active field trips on busses/vans to local parks and recreation facilities, as well as trips around the Piedmont area. Participants are grouped by age.
All participants must be independent with mobility, feeding, toileting and all self-care needs. Participants should participate in group activities and must be able to stay with the group. Participants who are not self-sufficient will be required to have a one-on-one personal assistant, which the parent/guardian must provide. Participants must have manageable behaviors and healthcare needs. They must be exempt from any extreme health-care conditions or needs. Camp Green Leaves is not able to accommodate participants needing assistance with ambulation due to uneven and rugged terrain. Staff to participant ratio is 1:2.
It is with great sadness to announce that for the first time in over 50 years, we will not be operating Camp Green Leaves this summer. Please read the document below for more information.
Virtual Summer activities
To stay connected with our families this summer, we will be providing creative virtual activities for Camp Green Leaves campers. If you are interested and able to participate, please email Elizabeth Hill at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is our hope to go virtual by the beginning of July.
