About the Anne Shore Sleep-Away Summer Camp Benefit
1) Apply by January 31
2) Camp Placement
The Anne Shore Sleep-Away Camp Program benefit is distributed based on members’ benefit history and seniority within the Union. Only one child per family may be accepted, with priority given to new members (i.e., first-time applicants). When space and budget permit, additional children from a family will be placed.
Based on your preferences and available space at each camp, Child Care Corporation staff will place your child with an Anne Shore camp provider. In March, you will be notified of your child’s camp placement.
3) Submit The Administrative Fee
A $50-per-child administrative fee is required to secure your benefit. Be sure to make payment by the required deadline.
The $50 administrative fee is refundable, but only if you drop your Anne Shore benefit by the last Friday in May.
4) Enroll With Your Child's Assigned Camp Provider
Each camp provider has important next steps that must be taken prior to the start of camp. Once notified of your child’s placement, you must immediately contact your assigned camp provider and complete its enrollment process.
5) Attend Camp
Your child attends his or her assigned camp program. Families tell us that they have an amazing experience!
6) After Camp
Once camp has finished, we ask that you complete a survey, telling us about your child’s camp experience.
Per the Internal Revenue Service, this is a taxable benefit. In January/February of the following year, you will receive a Form W-2 for the amount of tuition that was paid on your behalf.
