Join us for a Family Fun Day from 12 noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday or stay overnight for Family Camping. Both are a great way for families new to Camp Royall to get an idea of what we are all about and for return families to enjoy camp together. With Family Fun Days, you can enjoy all that Camp Royall has to offer, plus a cookout. (Our pool is open during our May and September Fun Days only.) The fee is $35 per family of two, plus $5 for each additional family member. No family will be turned away if the fee is a hardship, and as always, additional donations are always welcome.

If you want to make a weekend of it, please stay for Family Camping in one of our cabins after enjoying dinner, a campfire, and evening activities. A light continental breakfast is provided Sunday morning before checkout at noon. The rate for a family of two is $150, with a fee of $15 for each additional family member, for both cabin and camper/RV camping. We are now offering respite care during our family camping program for $50. You can come have a day/night at camp with your whole family which includes our fun day from 12-5 and then family activities around camp overnight.Ā  Respite will take place from 5:30-8 so that caregivers can have some time to themselves while our trained staff care for their kids (those on the spectrum and not).

For 2024 we are happy to offer a new program for adults. Adult Immersion Week includes having fun at camp but also an opportunity to immerse oneself in independent living skills such as cooking, cleaning, laundry, and house care.Ā  Immersion week also includes recreation and leisure elements from our adult retreat program but will place responsibility on adult attendees for helping with vital processes around camp for the week (i.e. instead of facility staff cooking and cleaning, Adult Immersion Week means a higher staff to attendee ratio and attendees will assist in preparing all meals, cleaning up after meals, maintaining their living space, communal space, etc.). The cost for this week is $1,200.

Adult Immersion Week

  • March 17- 22, 2024
  • September 29 – October 4
