Behavioral Intake & Profile

    Our goal at Camp Arnes is for every camper to establish good relationships with staff and other campers and to have a successful Camp experience. Part of this is recognizing that some children attending Camp may struggle with behavioral challenges and that no two children are exactly alike. We ask that the parents of any child who requires medication for such challenges, or who has struggled at Camp in previous years, complete a behavioral profile for their child. We recognize that there is no "cookie cutter" solution and all of the information that you share with Camp staff will help us to better understand your child, their challenges and how to be consistent in their care.

    Please fill this form out honestly and completely.
