We are committed to providing a variety of recreation and leisure options for individuals with disabilities.
Families looking for 2021 Day Camp options for individuals ages 4-12 are encouraged to register for programming through their local park district and request inclusion support from FVSRA.

Our Inclusion team ensures that necessary accommodations for success are in place prior to the start of day camp. A plan for accommodating those who have special needs is determined through open communication with park district staff, participants and families. Modifications can include the following:
Visual Systems (Timers, Written/Picture Schedule, etc.)
Sensory Supplies (Noise Canceling Headphones, Fidgets, etc.)
Modifications to Activities
Additional Personnel (Inclusion Companions, Sign Language Interpreters, etc.)
Any individual enrolled in a member park district program with special needs is eligible to receive inclusion services, and these services are free. The request for inclusion services should be made at the time of registration with the park district: when registering, please indicate on the registration form that accommodations are needed.
Though not required, families are encouraged to contact a member of the FVSRA Inclusion team to inform them of the need for support so that advance coordination of services can begin. To learn more contact Becky Fredrickson, Inclusion Manager, at BeckyF@fvsra.org or by calling (630) 746-1678.
