Please do not drop your children off any earlier as staff may be busy setting up and not be able to supervise.  Pick- up will be at 3:00 p.m.. sharp for full-day camps and noon for half-day camps. We ask that you check your child out of camp with a counselor and be prepared to show identification.

    MEDICATION
    Staff are prohibited from administering any medication, including sun block and insect repellent. If your child needs to use these items please do so before coming to camp. Campers may self-administer medication (inhalers, epi-pens, etc.) As needed with doctor and parental permission. Please label all personal items.

    WHAT TO WEAR/BRING
    Our camps are active camps! Please have campers wear comfortable clothing and sneakers (flip flops and open toed sandals are not allowed). Campers may get dirty under certain circumstances; please keep this in mind since fun learning can be a messy process! It’s recommended that you send a change of clothes if there is a chance of light rain in the forecast. Also, please send a   re-usable water bottle for re-filling throughout the day. Campers are responsible for their own belongings. Please make sure everything is well labeled. Please do not send valuable items to camp (ipods, games etc).  Parks staff cannot be responsible for loss or theft. Please see additional notes (if any) under each camp for specifics pertaining that camp.

    LUNCHES
     
    The City of Syracuse School District is gracious to supply our full-day camps with boxed lunches at no cost which allows us  the opportunity to keep our camps affordable with the option of providing lunches. If your child has any dietary restrictions or preferences we STRONGLY encourage the child bring his/her own lunch from home. Please be mindful that just like the schools, refrigeration will not be available for lunches so we ask that you plan accordingly...microwaves and stoves will also not be available.
