Greater Richmond’s ARC’s weekend respite program scheduled

The Greater Richmond ARC, an organization providing programs and services for individuals with developmental disabilities for nearly 60 years, will host weekend respite opportunities for adults (ages 18 and older) and children (ages 10-17) with developmental disabilities throughout the year at Camp Baker in Chesterfield.

The weekend respite program provides participants with a wide range of supervised activities, including music, arts and crafts and community outings at ARC's 22-acre, handicapped-accessible facility.

The weekend respite program benefits everyone in the family, according to Quintin Mitchell, vice president of developmental services at ARC.

"We provide services that enhance a person’s life. That‘s one less worry for caregivers because they are leaving their loved one in an environment with a skilled staff," Mitchell said.

Children's respite weekends begin Friday at 6 p.m. through Sunday at 4 p.m. the weekends of: Feb. 1, Mar. 1, Apr. 5, May 3, May 31, Jul. 5, Aug. 2, Sept. 13, Oct. 11, Nov. 8 and Dec. 13.

Adult weekend respite programs are scheduled on the weekends of Jan. 25; Feb. 8, 15 and 22; Mar. 8, 15 and 22; Apr. 12, 19 and 26; May 10, 17, and 24; Jun. 14, 21 and 28; Jul. 12, 19 and 26; Aug. 9 and 23; Sept. 6, 20 and 27; Oct. 4, 18 and 25; Nov. 1, 15 and 29; and Dec. 6.

Cost per session is $593.86 or the equivalent in Medicaid waiver hours. For details, call (804) 358-1874, (804) 748-4789, or visit http://www.richmondarc.org.
