Parents are asked to remain in their vehicles. All campers must be signed in and out by a parent/guardian who is responsible for dropping off and picking up the child. Please have your child ready to leave the car in a timely manner for drop off to help traffic move along smoothly.
Before & After Care
Only campers pre-registered for before and/or after care are permitted to be dropped off / picked up outside of regular camp hours. When dropping off / picking up campers from before/after care, please walk campers to the Outdoor Park Main desk. Campers will need to be signed in/out by a parent/guardian. Before camp care begins at 7:30AM. Afternoon care ends at 5:30PM.
Swim Lessons PLUS
Campers may add swim lessons to their daily activities for an additional cost per week. Counselors will see that campers enrolled in these programs are brought to and from their camp groups. Space is limited for swim lessons. No refunds or make-ups will be given due to sickness, absences, or cancelled classes due to weather.
All camp deposits of $75 per week of registration are non-refundable.
The full camp balance is due by June 1st. We have 2 different payment plans that you can take advantage of:

For any camper registering after June 1st, tuition must be paid in full at the time of registration.

You may avoid this fee by using your checking or savings account as your primary method of payment. Processing fees will not be refunded. During out most recent software update, all forms or payment were removed from your account. New payment information will be required at point of registration.
All Camp Fit payments are non-refundable after June 1st. At the Camp Directors discretion, credits may be issued under certain circumstances. Credits will be good until the end of camp the following summer. No refunds or credits will be given due to sickness, absence, or missed days.

Rainy Days & Hot Days
Camp will meet each day as schedules, rain or shine. Some activities may continue to take place outdoors even in a rain shower. In the event of severe weather or extreme heat, camp will be held in our indoor facility and camp schedules and activities will be adjusted.
Children must bring their own bagged lunches and snacks. Please provide enough for your camper to have a snack in the morning and afternoon. Refrigeration will be provided. Campers must bring a water bottle every day. Refill water stations will be available. Campers will have the option to purchase afternoon snacks at our camp Snack Shack. Campers will also have the option to purchase lunch at an additional cost. Be sure to check the Camp Fit Lunch Menu.
Health & Safety
Health and safety are the highest priorities for summer camp activities. Most staff persons are trained in standard first aid and CPR. All pool staff are certified lifeguards. Most camp injuries are minor and are handled by our Camp Staff. If an injury occurs that may require further medical attention, you will be called to pick up your child. In a serious emergency, you will be called with the details and involved in the decision making.
Please do not send your child to camp if they are sick. Should your child become ill at camp, we will see that he/she is resting comfortably and call you for pick up. There will be a strict 24 hour sick policy. If the child has a fever, they cannot return to camp until they are fever free for 24 hours without the aid of medication.
While we are not a peanut-free camp, we do have a number of campers with peanut allergies. We are asking that parents try to avoid packing peanut-based products in lunches/snacks and find other suitable alternatives whenever possible.
NYS Department of Health mandates that all campers must have a health form on file with up-to-date immunizations prior to the first day of camp. Children will not be allowed to attend camp without them. Campers taking medication must complete the Medical Administration form.
We recommend that campers wear and bring sunscreen everyday. Campers should apply sunscreen before coming to camp each morning. If campers need sunscreen reapplied during the day, please show them how to reapply and counselors will remind them to do so.
What Your Child Should Bring to Camp
Comfortable, well-worn clothing and sneakers should be the norm. (Please no sandals or party shoes). Each child should bring a backpack with a bag lunch, snacks, bathing suit, towel, lifejacket approved by the US Coast Guard (if needed), water bottle, sunscreen. Send extra clothes/rain gear and a sweatshirt on chilly mornings. Remember that this is a camp and children will be changing clothes, running around, and losing items. Please label belongings and do not send your favorites to camp.
What “Not” To Bring
It is highly recommended that campers do not bring anything of value (ie; iPods, cell phones, games, toys, other electronics, etc.) We are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
Lost and Found
Please label your child’s belongings. Counselors will make every effort to collect all belongings before leaving an activity. Please remind your camper it is their responsibility to keep track of their belongings.
Cell Phone Usage
We are encouraging our campers to “Unplug and Connect” with one another. ALL electronic devices including cell phones, iPods, tablets, etc. are not permitted at camp. If a cell phone comes to camp, we will hold it at the front desk and return it to the camper before they go. Please do not encourage your camper to break our rules about cell phones. If you need to reach them, you can call the camp.
Campers are grouped by the grade they are going into in the fall. If you have a request for your camper to be grouped with a friend, please let us know ahead of time so we can arrange the groups accordingly. If your child is unhappy in their group and would like to switch, they need to bring it to the attention of the program staff. We will do our best to accommodate group requests and changes as long as we can do so and remain in the appropriate supervision rations.
Camper groups will rotate to different activities throughout the day including swimming, sports & games, arts & crafts, free play, and camper’s choice. Campers have a free swim period every day.

Any acts of aggression, provoked or otherwise, will not be tolerated and could result in camp suspension. Each camper is expected to respect direction from any member of the camp staff the first time. Each camper is expected to use appropriate language at all times.
