Financial support toward Summer Camp tuition 2017

For youth determined eligible for developmental disability services

The Children's System of Care (CSOC) provides eligible children and young adults financial support toward Summer Camp tuition. Financial support is based on available resources in a given fiscal year.

  2. The youth is under age 21 and will not turn 21 before the end of the camp dates selected for reimbursement. 
  3. The youth resides in his or her own home, with an uncompensated caregiver.

Youth are eligible for CSOC financial support toward Summer Camp tuition only during the time period in which they are not eligible to attend an extended school-year program.
