Home STEP: Respite Weeks

WEEK AT A HOME... AWAY FROM HOME (shared room/trailer)

Home STAY weeks are available weekly, year round, and are divided into 7 day blocks, starting every Sunday.  Participants enjoy an away camp experience, with the comforts of home.  Participants take part in recreation, leisure and social activities. Participants are assessed on their abilities to make informed choices, share space and share resources.  They share space and resources with one other person in a 2:1 participant to staff ratio. Food, travel and activity fees included.
