Residency Camp Requirements
Our Board of Directors financially supports and supervises overall camp operations. This body of individuals dedicates their time throughout the year to ensure that Camp Sue Osborn is adequately funded and able to host participants each and every summer. Most of the funds raised throughout the year are generous contributions from United Way of both Lake County and Geauga County - this is why we mandate that campers are current residents of one of those two counties.
We will make an exception for a camper who does not reside in Lake or Geauga County if the camp is not yet full AND if that camper can pay the full cost him/herself (this amounts to approximately $1,000). We will also allow our alumni campers to attend, if they have since moved away from those two counties.
Alumni Camp Requirements
Campers are eligible to attend Alumni Camp once they are 18 years old. They can continue participating in our regular day/overnight camps for two summers beyond their official school graduation. If they have a social graduation, but stay in school on an Individual Education Plan (IEP), they will continue to be eligible for regular camps until they discontinue IEP services. Once a camper moves up to Alumni Camp, they cannot move back to regular, school age camp.
