• Have an immediate family member who is currently or recently incarcerated in jail, prison, immigration custody, on probation or parole, or otherwise involved with the criminal justice system.This incarceration should be emotionally significant to the child.• Must be ages 8 to 10 • Must live in Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, Solano, Sonoma or Marin Counties
It's important at least one adult (best if a family member or caregiver) can support the child through the application process. This includes filling out forms for camp and year-round programs, signing permission slips, making sure child is packed and ready for camp, and getting to our van pick-up and drop-off spots on time (during camp / year-round programs).
This intake questionnaire will take 15-20 minutes, is confidential and will only be seen by authorized staff. It includes personal information to help us better understand the needs of your child. An Avary staff will follow-up with a phone call if they have further questions.
After we receive the completed paperwork, we'll determine if we have a space for the child at camp, and for which session. If the child has summer school or other summer conflicts, the caregiver should note this on the application.
Once the child is accepted into the program, we mail a Enrollment Packet, which includes a Enrollment Agreement, a Packing List, Pick-up & Drop-off information, Welcome Surevey (to be filled out by child) and Avary Caregiver Survey (to be filled out by the caregiver).
IMPORTANT: To attend camp every child MUST make a doctor's appointment, and have the doctor fill out the doctor's form that comes in the registration packet. Since this is often the most challenging aspect of the process, we suggest making an appointment as soon as possible.
