Camp Towhee - Camp Towhee is designed for children and youth between the ages of 10 and 18 who have a learning disability and experience social, emotional, mental health and/or behavioural problems.
Camp Winston - Camp Winston is a unique retreat for children with complex neurobiological disorders who need highly specialized support.
It is beyond the scope of our program to assess the unique needs of these campers on an intake basis. For this reason, we have a different application process for families with campers requiring extra support:
- First, apply directly to the Partner Camp.
- Apply to the Amici partner camp whose program you feel best meets your child’s unique needs. Let the camp know that you plan to apply for Amici funding. The partner camp will conduct an initial screening of each new applicant according to their typical application process. The camp will assess your child’s medical and developmental needs to determine if their camp is a suitable environment for your child.
- Partner Camp provides a referral to Amici.
- Once a child is approved by the camp, the family will be referred to Amici to apply for funding. Amici will then conduct a financial analysis and complete reference checks according to our typical application process.
Please note that we are not able to review funding applications for campers requiring additional support without an accompanying referral from a partner camp.
