Explore important family information about Night Owls.
We were very grateful that we could resume the Night Owls respite program in fall 2021 after pausing it for 1.5 years due to Covid. We have had a successful year! To ensure everyone's health and safety, we downsized the group size. We currently limit the number of children up to 15 max at each event. We hope that this prosperity will lead to continual donation-based funding and more volunteers.
Given the growth of Night Owls and the physical limitations of our building, we are currently operating on a waitlist. New families will be notified when they have been removed from the waitlist and will begin receiving invitations to events.
How Do I Register My Children?
New families can register their children with special needs who are 12 years and younger and their siblings who are 12 years and younger by completing, signing and returning the paperwork. Please email NightOwls@du.edu to proceed with the registration process.
*Please note, if your child needs medication(s) administered, we will need to receive the medication and special procedure form signed by a medical professional.
All children who participate MUST be registered at least four weeks prior to their first evening. Registration enables the Night Owls team to prepare for and care for your children according to their needs in the best way possible.
Please note within the Child Registration form, you can agree to participate in the evaluation of this program. We hope and encourage all families (and volunteers) to participate as this will serve as the beginning of research that will be used to establish Night Owls as a permanent program as well as inform standards for respite care for families with children with special needs.
Once complete please make sure to sign and date each form and email them to: NightOwls@du.edu
