Overnight Weekend RespiteIn Stepping Stones’ Weekend Respite program, teens and adults with disabilities find adventure on two-night retreats at our location in Batavia, Ohio.
The overnight program traditionally runs September through April and offers weekend respite care in an encouraging and inclusive environment. Participants age 16 and above are invited to enjoy a two-night stay at Stepping Stones’ Allyn Campus. With 47 acres, this scenic property is the perfect setting for an adventurous weekend respite and includes accessible trails, lakes for boating and fishing, in and outdoor program spaces, a commercial kitchen and more.
The Weekend Respite supports participants in building independence, enjoying new experiences and developing friendships. The days are filled with fun seasonal activities, art projects and team-building exercises. In the evenings, everyone enjoys dance parties, game nights, karaoke competitions and holiday celebrations.
Stepping Stones has worked with state and local officials to modify our program structure as well as closely follow guidelines from the CDC and Dept. of Health. For more information, please review information on necessary program changes at this time.
