2020 Camp Green Leaves

Camp Green Leaves is a summer day camp coordinated by the City of Burlington Recreation & Parks Department for children and adults with developmental disabilities. The camp schedule includes activity rotations in the outdoors, including swimming, arts and crafts, music, sports and games, and supervised free time. The camp also features daily active field trips on busses/vans to local parks and recreation facilities, as well as trips around the Piedmont area. Participants are grouped by age.  

All participants must be independent with mobility, feeding, toileting and all self-care needs. Participants should participate in group activities and must be able to stay with the group. Participants who are not self-sufficient will be required to have a one-on-one personal assistant, which the parent/guardian must provide. Participants must have manageable behaviors and healthcare needs. They must be exempt from any extreme health-care conditions or needs. Camp Green Leaves is not able to accommodate participants needing assistance with ambulation due to uneven and rugged terrain. Staff to participant ratio is 1:2.

Camp Green Leaves registration begins Monday, March 23rd! Priority will be given to Alamance County Residents until April 20, 2020. After the April 20 deadline, consideration will be given to participants outside of the Alamance County. Registration deadline is May 29, 2020.(Be advised that if your camper will be taking medication at camp, registration is recommended before the deadline as it could take up to 2 weeks to process medication packets). Please see Medication Policy Packet & Action Plan if medication is needed during camp hours.
