Our summer programs are more than just "another camp," and parental involvement is vital to a child’s success. Initially, the family completes an online Camper Application or paper application that explores the camper’s abilities, social adjustment level, and desired camp goals.
A Teacher or Counselor Evaluation Form helps us understand the student’s social needs while in school.
Nuhop will have a few virtual orientation days in place of our traditional orientation at camp for all new campers. More information to come.
The Pre-Camp Conference is highly recommended for new campers and their parents. If you cannot attend, time for a tour and Q&A may be possible with the summer director.
Have a family you'd like to refer? Please, let us know here; we would be glad to reach out.
Summer Camp Application Process
If you prefer to make installment payments, you may use the following timeline:
- The deposit is still due with the application.
- Half the balance is due on or before May 10th.
- The remainder is due on or before June 4th.
You may pay by cash or check. Your session must be paid in full for your child to attend summer camp.
Eligibility and Application
Children from 6 to 18 with learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, mood disorders, attention deficit, and other neuroatypical children may attend. There are also two camp sessions appropriate for individuals over the age of eighteen. Our summer camp program for children with special needs is not appropriate for children with severe cognitive disabilities or physical disabilities.
To apply, please complete the Camper Application or mail in our paper application. We accept campers on a first-come basis, and spaces are limited. Applications will be accepted until all places are filled. Your child will have a better chance of being placed in a compatible grouping with an earlier application.
There will be no accommodations between sessions for the year 2021, except for our Trailblazer and Horizon Quest camps.
Please enclose a $250 deposit per session to secure a place for your child. Campers without a deposit will not be placed.
While Nuhop makes every attempt to keep tuition reasonable, we understand that funding can be difficult to secure. Because of this, we offer scholarships for applicants who need financial aid.
Please mark the appropriate section of the application if you would like to receive scholarship information via mail. You will be sent a helpful sheet regarding campership funding, as well as an application that needs to be returned to the camp office.
The $250 deposit will not be covered by Nuhop scholarships, which may cover up to $500 of a camp program tuition.
There are five Respite Weekends during the school year for return and prospective new campers to attend. Respite Weekends are a great way for return campers to reconnect with summer friends and participate in some of their favorite camp activities. For prospective summer campers, Respite Weekends give campers a taste of what our summer camps for kids will be like, meet some new friends, and become acquainted with our camp program.
There are currently no planned Nuhop Respites for the year 2021.
