Camp in Motion Adaptive Sports Camp

Dell Children’s Adaptive Sports Camp in Partnership with the YMCA of Austin

Camp in Motion is designed for kids ages 5-21 with mild to moderate cerebral palsy, or other similar neurological diagnoses, who have reasonable use of at least one arm and can follow directions at preschool level. Kids at GMFCS Grade Levels I-IV are welcome as are those at Level V as long as they can use one arm, bring an attendant/nurse and are familiar to the camp program directors.

The cost of the camp can be submitted to most health insurance plans, and scholarships will be made available. Paying out of pocket is also an option if you don’t wish to use therapy visits for camp. A prescription is required for medical clearance to camp, which is included in the last page of the Camp Registration Form. In order to plan, you may contact your insurance company. You may provide the following billing codes to your provider for verification of coverage:  CPT Code 97161, 97162, 97163, 97150. Insurance companies have different expiration requirements for prescriptions but most are around 30 days. For any questions regarding Camp in Motion, please contact Vali Martin.
