2019 – 2020 Respite Club Membership Applications

Respite Club Applications become available in mid-August each year. The 2019-20 Respite Club Application is currently available to families interested in Parent’s Night Out (PNO) only.

2019-20 Respite Club Calendar

We are no longer accepting members to enroll in the 2-day Respite Weekend Camps or in the Teen & Adult Day Adventure (TADA) Programs; however, families with complete applications may request to be wait-listed for some/all weekends this season.

Families must complete the annual application and become members of the current season (September – May) to be able to register each month for Respite Weekend/Spring Break Camp, Parent’s Night Out (PNO) or Teen & Adult Day Adventure (TADA) events.

The Application Process

Applications will be processed for approval once you have completed the 3-Step Application Process:

Step 1: Submit an Online Respite Club Membership Application

Beginning in mid-August, you’ll be able to access the 2019-2020 season application on the CAMP home page at www.campcamp.org under “CAMPer Applications” at the top of the page.  Under the “Applications” section click, “Respite Club Membership Applications” and the link will be at the top of the page. After beginning an application, be sure to check your Parent Dashboard (under the Forms tab) and your email for additional guidance through the online and paperwork submissions.

When submitting a CAMP application, be sure to:

  1. Use a personal (not business) email address for the application.
  2. Add services@mail.campsite-mail.com to your “safe senders list”.
Step 2: Submit Respite Club Membership Fee*

For your convenience, payment information may be entered for the the Respite Club Membership Fee while completing the application. Payments are not processed until the application has been reviewed and accepted. You may also update credit card information via the My account tab. If you prefer to mail in your check or credit card payment, please print the 2019-2020 Respite Club Membership Parent Payment Form (under Forms tab) and mail it to PO Box 27086, San Antonio, TX  78227.

*Membership fees are waived for campers who utilize funding from a TX Medicaid Waiver Program. Select “Other” and “Pay Nothing Now” at checkout if this applies to your camper, or if you’re unsure.

Step 3: Submit Physician’s Report

After you submit your camper’s online Respite Club Application, you will be able to download the Physician’s Report form from the Forms tab.

  • Print the Physician’s Report form and have camper’s doctor fill it out based on an annual physical exam.
  • Upload the form into your camper’s application OR fax completed form to (210) 671-5244 OR mail it to PO Box 27086, San Antonio, TX  78227.
  • CAMP will not accept Physician’s Report forms based on an older exam; a new physical exam must be done and the form completed if the date of exam is over 1 year old. If you believe a current physical is on file from a previous CAMP application, email Christina Gill at christina.gill@campcamp.org to check. If your camper’s physical will be expiring during the school-year, be sure to let us know the next scheduled exam date.

Respite Club Membership Applications will be processed within 5-7 business days from the receipt of the online Application, Physician’s Report, and Membership Fee payment information. Upon acceptance into the Respite Club, CAMP will send an email with the 2019-20 Respite Club program policies and full enrollment information for the monthly PNO, TADA, and the seasonal enrollment (“Choose 3” in early September) for Respite Camp events.
