Dear Campers and Families,
After careful consideration and with heavy hearts, we announce the cancellation of this year’s Summer camps.
We know that this will come as an enormous disappointment to our families and campers so please know that this is not a decision we have taken lightly. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have to consider the health and safety risks to everyone involved including our campers, volunteers and staff, while adhering to the physical distancing restrictions that are enforced by the government health regulations.
We are currently looking into new and safe ways to reopen the Ranch to the community this summer! These sessions will potentially be in the form of family weekend retreats with up to 6 families to visit the Ranch per weekend. We are also considering opening up a day camp for families operating once per week and alternating with Mixed Diagnoses Camps, Autism Camps and Adult Camps. Please note that the new sessions are in the development stage and are not yet confirmed. We will be keeping you informed with further details as we solidify our plans.
Families who are using Autism Funding to pay for camp can amend or cancel their requests directly through AFU by clicking the “Request to Amend an Authorization” link located on the right-hand side of their My Family Services Dashboard, or call 1 (877) 777-3530 to amend the total over the phone.
If you have already made a payment for camp, your payment can be applied as a credit toward a future registration or to any of our potential new sessions opening up this summer. We can also issue a refund if applicable.
We also would like to ask you to please kindly consider donating a portion of your registration fee to the Mel Jr. & Marty Zajac Foundation. We are doing everything possible to sustain daily operations so that we can move forward with camps in the future.
In the coming weeks, we will be contacting families to confirm their refunds or to apply their credit towards camp in the future. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions? We can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call the office at 604-739-0444.
We are looking forward to the return of our Summer camp season in 2021! Until then we wish you a safe and healthy Summer!
Zajac Ranch Staff
