Camp in Motion Adaptive Sports Camp
Dell Children’s Adaptive Sports Camp in Partnership with the YMCA
Camp in Motion is designed for kids ages 5-20 with mild to moderate cerebral palsy (GMFCS Level I, II, and III), or other similar neurological diagnoses, who have reasonable use of at least one arm and can follow directions at preschool level. If you are uncertain of your child’s ability to participate at this level, please contact email@example.com.
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 facility related questions regarding Camp in Motion, please direct Southwest Family YMCA questions to Vali Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org and CHASCO Family YMCA questions to David Stryjewski at email@example.com, and for billing and therapy related questions contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The experience includes sports, friends and fun in an inclusive environment. Campers participate in individual and group activities with Dell Children’s pediatric physical and occupational therapists and YMCA program staff.
