Camp Gencheff is a year round facility providing a respite care program from October to May. The programs provide a safe weekend of enrichment for participants while family members benefit by having time to regenerate for their caretaking duties. All fees may be cost shared by the Department of Child and Family Services or Disability Support Program.

RESPITE CAMPS: Our camps are once every month starting Friday evening at 6:00 pm until Sunday afternoon at 2:00 pm. Come join us for a fun filled weekend!
