Things to know for 2022 Camp Parkview Day Camp:

  • Camp Parkview is open to Campers ages 18+. We sometimes will have campers under 18 come as visitors, with a parent staying with them throughout the day.
  • This year, we will hold day-camp over 3 consecutive days- July 29, 30, and 31st. A valuable part of the Camp Parkview program is the respite opportunities provided to Camp Parkview families, so we extended the hours to a full day, 10:00 AM- 4:00 PM will be the camp times this year. We have rented out the shaded and large picnic shelter at Paramount Park, in Shoreline. We hope that this programming is convenient, safe, and most importantly FUN!
  • What are we going to do for the days we are together? We are currently working with a whole bunch of creatives, artists, and vendors to provide your camper with the most spectacular Camp experience possible. This will include 2 days of yoga, dance class/session, arts and crafts, drama, and the return of the world-famous Camp Parkview Talent Show!
  • Lunch will be provided on Sunday, July 31st. Friday and Saturday, please plan on bringing a sack lunch for your camper to eat with the group. Also, for the safety of your camper and the group, masks will be expected to be worn when not eating.
  • We are asking our campers to contribute $150 for the three-day Camp Parkview program. As always, we are accepting DDA respite funds to cover this cost. We also have scholarship opportunities available for those who need it. No one will be turned away for lack of funds!
  • Lastly, please know that we would like campers to come to all three days if possible. This will help us replicate the friendship and community that our camp has historically provided. If we reach capacity, we will prioritize campers who can attend all three days.
  • Information about Camp Parkview Sleep-away camp, which we hope to return to in 2023:

    • Camp Parkview is open to Campers ages 18+. We sometimes will have campers under 18 come as visitors, with a parent staying with them throughout the day.
    • Camp Parkview sessions are 5 days long, from Sunday afternoon to Friday morning.
    • The fee for Camp Parkview is $750 per session per Camper. This includes 5 days of away-from home camp with trained Counselors and Nurses providing care, all meals and snacks, art supplies and a T-Shirt for each camper. After Camp, we mail home a special memory book before the holidays. We have a limited number of scholarships and partial scholarships every year, please contact our Camp Director for details. Nobody is turned away for lack of funds!
    • Camp Parkview is co-ed, but cabins are separated by male and female. The ratio of Counselors to Campers is generally 1:3. Please keep this ratio in mind when considering if your camper would be a good fit for Camp Parkview.
    • Campers stay in rustic cabins with private bathrooms. Campers that need assistance with bathing, hands-off toileting, dressing, and other activities of daily living will be fully cared for, as appropriate.
    • Family and friends are welcome to visit Camp and see your Campers! Just come to the administration cabin to sign in. Popular times to visit are at mealtimes and during the big end-of session talent show on Friday night. (You don’t want to miss this!)
    • Four Registered Nurses stay for the duration of Camp to provide assistance with medications, treatments, first aid and other nursing care needs.
    • Camp fees only cover the cost of the Camp Burton Facility and meals- our Counselors and Nurses Volunteer their time and we fundraise throughout the year to cover other expenses, like bus transportation to the local swimming pool, arts and crafts supplies, special snacks and stipends for key staff.
