2022 CSOC Summer Camp Services - Updated Advance Information

For 2022 (this may change in the future, but for this year) – the CSOC Summer Camp Services application season will run from March 1, 2022 to June 30, 2022.  Everything will go live on or around March 1 at www.performcarenj.org/SummerCamp. Remember, youth must be deemed eligible for CSOC developmental disability (DD) services to qualify for Summer Camp Services. 

To help families with children and youth, up to age 21 with developmental/intellectual disabilities in the process of securing a Summer Camp program, here is some preliminary information, provided by a contact at PerformCare.

The application for Summer Camp Services (for DD/ID children and youth) for 2022 will be a 4-month period, between March 1 and June. 30.

  • This page, https://www.performcarenj.org/families/disability/summer-camp.aspx has a FAQ and Qualified Camp Providers list (for 2021) and is a good place to start to look at camps for 2022.  See the second bullet point, “Qualified Children’s System of Care (CSOC) Camp Providers” and select your county (or ALL Camps, for a complete list of all 40 camps open in 2021).  Note also, the FAQ document has useful information (even though it is for 2021).
  • Start looking in January for the camps your child may want to attend. 
  • A prerequisite for Summer Camp is that the youth is deemed eligible for CSOC developmental disability (DD) services.  If the family hasn’t already applied for eligibility, that’s the step they need to take.   That is the part of the process that takes the longest.  I/DD eligibility is here: https://www.performcarenj.org/families/disability/determination-eligibility.aspx
  • Summer Camp Applications will be live on the PerformCare site by Tuesday, March 1, 2022.
