I've been calling all over this island today with no results. Apparently, a day camp program for a 7 year old with hearing impairment and bipolar disorder doesn't exist here.
I put in a phone call to a local day care that also does day camp. I'm waiting on a call back from their care coordinator to find out if they're equipped to handle Tristan's special needs. I don't know if they'll be able to provide his medication if I do enroll him. I'm also waiting on a phone call from a resource here that is looking into programs for hearing impaired children. I'm crossing my fingers they can help.
I called Military One Source last night. I got hung up on after being on hold for ten minutes. I was so frustrated I wanted to cry. Anyway, I got an email from them this morning that announced they had been unable to find anything in the area. It contained a list of places I could call to ask about day camp. Honestly, I feel like I wasted time calling One Source. I could have gotten that list myself off the internet.
If we do find something that is willing to take Tristan, I worry about the cost. We're looking at a minimum of $1000. We'll have to dip into our savings account to pay for this. I was hoping there would be some resources to help us, but I'm not feeling too hopeful at this point.
C. doesn't want to pay out that small fortune for Tristan to go to summer camp. I think Tristan needs it, so if I can find anything, we're doing it.
