I fully completed* my child’s registration for Summer Camp, and I want my child to attend the Emergency Child Care program. Do I have to register again? No, please contact me at   *fully completed means all forms have been uploaded and/or submitted
How will you determine who is accepted into the summer Emergency Child Care program? We will determine who is accepted into the program by order of registration. Each registration is time and date stamped when they were submitted. In addition, this program is   only open to working families, per the Governor’s order for emergency childcare. If this changes, and we have spots available, we would open it to non-working families.
What is the Emergency Child Care program going to look like? We are still working on many of the details, but in order to keep our participants and staff as safe as possible, Emergency Child Care will be completely different from our “typical” Summer Day Camp. I cannot stress enough that the Emergency Child Care program will not be anything like the summer programs in the past. I have listed the changes below.

  • May need to cancel this program if the health environment dictates closure.
  • We will be offering a maximum of 45 slots and maintaining a ratio of 9 children: 1 staff.
