Integration at Cave Springs
Our integration program is designed to ensure Cave Springs is a place where all campers can be part of the fun. Our camp counsellors will provide your camper with 1:1 support in order to help them be included in all aspects of camp life.

What to Expect
1. Confirm your space with the camp director
2. Complete preliminary registration paperwork and payment online via Camp Brain registration system
3. Our camp integration co-ordinator will call you a minimum of one month before your child attends camp. They will gather information to assist our staff in supporting your child at camp.
4. On the firs day of camp be prepared to spend some time with your child's camp counsellor going over any pertinent information and answering any questions they may have.
Campers participating in our 1:1 support program will be paired with a staff member (typically an older teenager) that will be their "buddy" throughout their week at camp to provide additional assistance and supervision as needed. While this staff member may not have specialized training working with children with special needs, they will be someone that is responsible, caring, and patient. Please contact the camp director if you are unsure if this program would be a good fit for your child.
Remember that you MUST confirm your space with the camp director prior to completing the registration process for 1:1 support.
