2020 Camp Bursary Application
The Waterloo Regional Down Syndrome Society Board of Directors is excited to offer a camp bursary to assist with extra costs that can be associated with inclusion support for year round camps for our children with Down syndrome, and hope to open doors to some camp experiences that otherwise would not be possible.
What Qualifies for Reimbursement From the Bursary?
The camp bursary assists in costs incurred for Inclusion Facilitators or support workers, supporting the family's child, between the ages of 4-17, at a camp. The camp can be either full time or part time. The bursary will not reimburse for regular camp fees, transportation costs to the camp or meals or snacks incurred during the camp.
There are some camps designed specifically for children with special needs that offer great activities with the needed support, which can come at a higher cost than typical camps. These camps also qualify for the camp bursary. (Please provide information on the camp.)
Approved applicants will need to provide the following for reimbursement:
A copy of the invoice/receipt of payment for the camp registrations, proof of attendance at a camp
A copy of the invoice/receipt of payment for the fee of the Inclusion Facilitator provided by the camp
A copy of the invoice or support form signed by the support person. If an invoice is being provided, the name, address, contacts and signature of the Inclusion Facilitator needs to be included on the invoice.
• A privately provided support person needs to 18 years old or older
• The family will need to pay the support person or camp fees directly as WRDSS will reimburse the family only. WRDSS will not pay a support person directly
• Regular volunteer hours will be verified before receiving this bursary
