Summer Camps


Summer camps are back! 

Sessions begin July 6 for ages 8+.

Registration Information


Registration is online only. You can browse and register for camps HERE or use our Summer Camp Guide to find the camps that best meet your family’s needs.

Registration for each section of camp will close one week prior to the start date of the camp session or when the camp section is full. Upon completion of the online registration process, families will need to complete and upload additional forms with providing contact, medical, and special needs information for each camper. These must be completed seven (7) days prior the arrival of your child/children for camp. You will receive links to this system, called “e-Pact,” after completing the initial registration process.


For your program registration to be consider complete and for your child to participate, you will need to:

  • Complete your camper information form at the time of registration
  • Make any payments related to the programs you have chosen
  • Create an account with e-PACT
  • Complete and/or upload the necessary forms associated with the program you registered for
  • Continue to make changes, as needed, to your family's account.

 

 If you need assistance during the online registration process, please email tdella@pwcgov.org. Support will be available from
 9am - 5pm Monday through Friday.

Health & Safety

Several aspects of how we operate our camps have been adjusted to help mitigate risks associated with coronavirus exposer as we move through the Commonwealth's phased approach to reopening.

 

Summer camps will be available for children and youth ages 8-14. Because of the difficulty maintaining appropriate social distancing with younger groups, we will not be holding camps for ages 7 and under.

 

So that campers will not be riding on buses in proximity to one another, summer camps will not feature field trips during the 2020 season. Swimming will also not be available at our camps this year due to the continued closure of our pools and waterparks.

 

Other summer camp policies and procedures we’re implementing to reduce the risk of coronavirus exposure include, but may not be limited to:

  • Children with existing health conditions or compromised immune systems should not attend camps.
  • Camp groups will be smaller this season with a lower total number of camp participants and a higher staff-to-camper ratio of 1:8. Drop-off and pick-up procedures will be adjusted.
  • Intermingling between camp groups will be minimized and campers will not share communal supplies or toys. We will not be conducting field trips.
  • All activities will be structured to minimize contact between campers and social distancing will be continuously encouraged.
  • Campers will spend more time engaged in play outside during appropriate weather conditions.
  • We will have hand sanitizer stations and strictly enforced designated hand-washing times.
  • Staff members will be strongly encouraged to wear face coverings indoors. Campers will also be strongly encouraged to wear them except during outdoor or physical activities.
  • Additional cleaning and sanitation practices will be implemented.
  • Temperature and verbal health checks with the parent/guardian will be conducted daily before the camper can enter. We will also do an afternoon temperature check that a supervisor will sign off on.
  • If a child develops symptoms associated with COVID-19, they will be isolated, and they will have to be picked up within 2 hours. There will be a strict 72-hour sick policy. If a child has a fever, they cannot return until they are 72 hours fever free without the aid of medicine.
  • Campers who do not consistently follow safety directives from staff regarding distancing, hand washing, and other suspect behaviors may be disenrolled.

 

The way we operate our camps may continue to change throughout the summer as the Commonwealth and our local public health officials offer additional guidance.
