Summer Day Camps

Camp Policies & Procedures: COVID-19

With camp starting just around the corner, there are a few items that we would like to share in preparation for the first day of camp.  Please see the descriptions of these documents below:

New Castle Assumption of Risk: COVID-19 – This form is a required form for your child to attend the New Castle Day Camps this year.  Please email/fax this prior to the start of camp to the Recreation Office

Camper Health Assessment Form – For the safety of all involved, campers and staff will be required to fill out and return this form before they enter the camp premise, where a temperature and wellness check will be taken.  Every day following a temperature check will be taken and recorded, as well as a review of this form to ensure there has been no exposure or symptoms of COVID-19.  Please return this form upon drop-off on the first day of camp.  Camper’s will not be able to attend camp if this form is not returned or completed.

Sunscreen Authorization Form ­– This form allows staff to help campers, in their group ONLY, apply SPRAY sunscreen if necessary.  Staff will not be able to assist campers in applying lotion based sunscreen.  Please return this form before or on the first day of camp.

Immunizations- Please be sure to send us a copy of your child’s immunization records BEFORE the start of camp if you have not done so already.  These records are required by the Westchester County Department of Health and a child cannot begin camp until these forms are turned in.
