Rising Treetops and the Covid-19 Pandemic

As of September 29, 2021, Rising Treetops resumed its overnight respite program with some modifications due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  As a result of the recent surge with the COVID-19 Delta variant, the emergence of breakthrough cases and the need for booster shots for many of our clients and staff, as well as having significant challenges hiring vaccinated direct care workers willing to quarantine and live at our facility, we will be holding only 12-night and 7-night overnight respite sessions from September 2021 through early June 2022.

 

These sessions have limited slots and will be filled on a first come, first served basis with priority given to those not able to attend our 2021 modified summer program sessions.  All ages and disabilities will be considered for placement in all sessions.  Please contact Donna by email at respite@risingtreetops.org or by phone at 732-531-0215 for more information. Please know all staff at Rising Treetops are fully COVID-vaccinated and since June 2021 we now require all clients at Rising Treetops to also be fully COVID-vaccinated.

 

As of January 10, 2022, and finalized and confirmed as of April 7, 2022, Rising Treetops is pleased to announce it will be holding its 2022 Summer Camp. See the Summer Camp and Registration sections of our website for more information.

 

While all day services are suspended through May 31, 2022, Rising Treetops will resume day services through its 2022 Summer Day Camp starting on June 18, 2022. For more information on our 2022 Summer Day Camp, please email info@risingtreetops.org or call 732-531-0215.

 

The dates and details can be found on the Registration – Calendar section of this website.  

 

We hope you and your loved ones are faring as well as possible during this difficult time.

 

Note:  If you are not aware, Rising Treetops’ overnight respite, after school and summer camp services have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As of March 20, 2020, except for a long term emergency respite service, we suspended all other planned overnight respite and day programs, and subsequently extended the suspension of services to include our 2020 Summer Camp and all but our emergency services until June 2021 when we opened a modified limited summer camp program. Our services are provided to children and adults with special needs, including autism and physical and intellectual disabilities.
