Financial Assistance Available
Parent Association provides scholarships. NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities and Perform Care also provides funding to individuals based on their individual cases. We also participate with the Medicaid Waiver Program for summer camps.
The programs that are listed on our website reflect lots of effort, time and enthusiasm provided by our parent support group, the Daisy Association, the Township's Department of Recreation, Parks & Community Services, our staff and in large part by the parents of the children we serve.
All the programs, have been created in an attempt to be responsive to your requests to address your child's needs. As part of the Township of East Brunswick, while our budget is adequate, it in no way provides enough funding to be the sole financial support for all of the programs we offer. We charge fees that are in most cases, a mere fraction of the cost for each child to participate. The parents association is generous in funding many of our programs.
We try new programs, see how they are received and then either continue them or cancel them if they are not as effective as we would hope. Please keep in mind that we are a municipal recreation program that seeks to provide responsive, appropriate, programs for people with disabilities. The end result is that everything that we offer, beyond the budget that the Township provides, is due to parent fees and the generosity and support of people who donate money to the Daisy Association.
At the core of our programs is a staff that is enthusiastic, responsive and skilled. They all love working in our programs, have great legs (they're fast on their feet) and can't wait for the next program session. They are consistently, the hardest working, most responsive group of individuals. They are simply, the best.
We are planning an exciting, fun filled, challenging Summer program. Give us the opportunity to share our program with your child.
ALL NEW POSSIBLE PARTICIPANTS NEED TO SCHEDULE AN INFORMAL INTAKE BEFORE REGISTERING FOR ANY PROGRAMS. THIS IS ENSURE THAT WE ARE A PROPER FIT FOR YOUR CHILD. Please email Caitlin Kehoe at email@example.com
