Inclusion Statement

At Twilight Park Day Camp, we work hard to ensure that camp is a welcoming and inclusive space that feels safe to every member of our community, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status.  We achieve this with ongoing staff training and programming that celebrates cultural differences and by accepting and loving those with different experiences than our own.

 Twilight Park Day Camp has a zero tolerance for discrimination and harassment based on race, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic background, or sextual identity, whether spoken, written, or otherwise communicated, by campers, counselors, and staff. 

Twilight Park Day Camp strives to welcome campers from a wide array of backgrounds. The health, safety, and welfare of our campers are our top priority. We also want every camper to have a fun, safe, and successful time at camp. To help achieve these goals, we have to be realistic with ourselves and our families about what we can accommodate and what special needs are beyond our capabilities. There’s a camp out there for every child – for TPDC to be the right fit for your child, they must be able to do the following at a developmentally appropriate level for his or her age: 

  • Communicate needs and concerns verbally with others at a conversational level of English

  • Understand and comply with directions given by staff

  • Refrain from unsafe and/or harmful behaviors toward self and others (including self-harm)

  • Identify and avoid health/safety risks

  • Feel comfortable in a rustic, outdoor environment (e.g. no air-conditioning, varying weather conditions, insects/animals, grass/dirt/mud)

  • Maneuver rugged terrain and distances

  • Follow a varied individual schedule and manage free time

  • Assume responsibility for personal hygiene

  • Maintain proper nutrition and hydration

  • Demonstrate age-appropriate social and emotional skills in managing personal boundaries, relationships, communication, stress, and conflict

  • Manage the sensory stimulation of a frequently large, loud, and energetic group environment 

  • Participate fully in all scheduled activities and programs

  • Engage in behaviors that contribute to the positive community and spirit of TPDC 

We are not able to provide a one-on-one staff member to address a camper’s special needs.

In addition, we are not able to accommodate medical issues requiring treatment beyond the scope of our Assistant Health Director.

Before enrolling a child with any special needs, please contact us to discuss potential accommodations. If TPDC ends up not being a good fit for your child, we are happy to connect you with another camp better suited to your child’s needs and interests.
