It’s Summer Camp Time!
Summer Camp is an incredible opportunity for children ages 5-17 to enjoy new experiences outside of their everyday routines and school. In collaboration with Community Based Care of Central Florida (CBCCF), the Foundation for Foster Children is accepting requests for CBC of Central Florida children from Seminole, Orange & Osceola counties (does not include other CBC children placed here from out of area). This is intended to allow children to have unique opportunities and is not meant to meet a need for childcare.
- Please review the guidelines below to help the camp process run smoothly:
- Summer camps must fall between May 30th and August 12th
- Camps should be age-appropriate, individualized, and wanted by the child.
- Due to limited funding, requests for camps longer than 2 weeks or overnight camps will not be approved. If the child requires more than 2 weeks for caregiver work purposes or other circumstances, please submit your request to the Foundation link below, and it will be reviewed by CBCCF Utilization Management staff working together with the Foundation.
- For children who may qualify for FSPT funding because they are in therapy or have a mental health diagnosis in the past 12 months, please submit your request to the Foundation, and it will also be reviewed by CBCCF Utilization Management staff prior to approval. To expedite the approval, please contact your Clinical Coordinator or UM county point of contact prior to submitting the Foundation request.
To help assist the Foundation, CBCCF has identified County Utilization Management Points of Contact:
Orange– Vanessa Monn- 321-441-2357, Seminole – Michelle Blanchette-407-268-9266, Osceola – Elicia Garcia- 321-442-8506
- For children with an active Family Support, In-Home, or Post-Adoption case requiring summer camp for emergency placement stability purposes only, please contact the UM County Point of Contact directly who will work in conjunction with the County Diversion Managers in reviewing, as the Foundation will not be handling these requests.
