BEFORE COMING TO CAMP

Camper Forms & Other Important Information

We are required by CT camp licensing to have camper emergency information and a valid health exam form on file before your child attends camp. Your child may not begin camp until we have these forms on file. NO EXCEPTIONS are allowed. Please return all forms at least two week prior to the start of camp.

There is a whole lot that happens at camp. Ensure that you and your child are ready for your first day by reviewing our Camp Overview & Guidelines. It is chock full of information about where to meet, what we do each day, how to contact us, what we need from you before camp starts and so much more!

Due to strict Connecticut state licensing regulations for camp, we must have all paperwork (Health Exam Form, Camper Info Form, and applicable Medical Administration Forms) on file before your child attends camp. Your child will not be considered fully registered and you may not leave him/her in our care unless we have received their forms and if applicable, medications with accompanying proper authorization. NO EXCEPTIONS can be afforded. This is a serious matter of state licensing regulations, so please RETURN ALL Forms and help us maintain our licensing standards and provide an easy and seemless check-in process once camp begins.
