For youth determined eligible for Developmental Disability Services
For 2020, the Children's System of Care (CSOC) will be providing Summer Camp Services to eligible children, youth, and young adults younger than 21 years of age. These services include Financial Support toward Summer Camp Tuition and One-to-One Aide Services for Summer Camp. Your child must be determined eligible for Developmental Disability Services by CSOC and registered for a qualified camp prior to submitting the application for CSOC Summer Camp Services.
A youth can be considered eligible for CSOC Summer Camp Services if all of the following conditions are met:
- The youth is deemed eligible for CSOC Developmental Disability (DD) Services.
- The youth is younger than 21 and will not turn 21 before the end of the camp dates selected for reimbursement.
- The youth resides in his or her own home, with a caregiver.
Youth are eligible for CSOC Summer Camp Services only during the period of time in which they are not eligible to attend an extended school-year program. Financial support is based on available resources in a given fiscal year. The amount of financial support available per individual is capped and may vary year to year and by how many families apply.
Completed applications for CSOC Summer Camp Services (Financial Support toward Summer Camp Tuition and One-to-One Aide Services for Summer Camp) must be postmarked or received by PerformCare no later than April 30, 2020. Your application must be complete for the services requested for it to be considered.

Qualified CSOC camp providers
CSOC will provide financial support toward summer camp tuition only for those camps on the qualified camp provider list linked below.
Please select a county in New Jersey to view the available qualified camp provider. To access services, you must directly contact the qualified camp provider to register your child for camp.
One-to-one aide information: for youth determined eligible for Developmental Disability Services
For summer camp season 2020, one-to-one aides can be provided to youth deemed eligible for CSOC Developmental Disability Services who would otherwise be unable to participate in camp.
Before applying, families should consult with their selected camp. If the camp has determined your child will require the assistance of a one-to-one aide/advocate to attend camp, you must complete Part B of the application. You and the camp provider must complete the Child Adaptive Behavior Summary (CABS) together on the application in order to apply for One-to-One Aide Services. The camp must retain a copy of the jointly completed CABS.
In addition, a copy of the CABS must be provided to the identified one-to-one aide provider agency as it provides a broad picture of the impact of the child’s disability on daily life for both the child and the caregiver and helps ensure the “best fit” of one-to-one aide for your child. Please also refer to the Qualified One-to-One Aide Provider List below to complete the application.
You will also need the child’s CYBER ID number in order to complete the application. If this information is not known, please contact PerformCare at 1-877-652-7624. Your application must be complete in order for it to be processed.
Attention: Due to high demand for one-to-one aides for children attending camp the last two weeks of August, CSOC cannot guarantee all requests will be filled.
Please note: If you are applying for financial support toward summer camp tuition, you must also complete Part A of the CSOC Summer Camp Services application. Applications must be completed and postmarked/submitted to PerformCare by April 30, 2020.
