General theme of program is fun, social enrichment, outdoor life, physical fitness and arts.  We have made several modifications to our day camp programming - with the safety of campers and staff at the fore thought in every activity.  We have divided the camp sessions into six one-week sessions (total of 6 weeks starting June 28th through August 6th.)

  • Enrollment is limited to Guilderland residents only.
  • Pre-Registration is required.
  • On-line registration deadline is the Thursday before the camp session begins. Unregistered campers are prohibited.

  • Campers will stay with the same counselors and group throughout their session. Groups sizes will be reduced to comply with distancing and gathering size regulations.

  • A registered nurse and certified EMT will be on duty at all times. Parents will be called if necessary. Please provide 2 current emergency contact names & telephone numbers.

  • The Town reserves the right to limit participation based on behavior of campers and will not provide a refund. A refund will also not be provided once the camper’s registered session begins.

COVID-19 Modifications
  • **Important Please Read**
  • We will not be able to provide transportation to/from camp. There will be designated drop-off/pick-up locations - by age groups - utilizing the facilities throughout the park. Designated locations are TBD.
  • To eliminate congestion Parents/Guardians are strongly encouraged to complete the daily screening form. Your child/children will not be permitted out of the car until a daily pre-screening is complete - to be verified by a member of the nursing staff on site. A screening will need to be completed (per-camper, per-day, per-week).
  • Campers and staff will be reminded to follow CDC guideline - frequent hand washing, coughing & sneezing etiquette (into a tissue or elbow), maintain a 6ft distance whenever possible and wear a mask when it is not.
  • Campers are encouraged to bring their own mask and a spare - or we will provide one. Masks will be required for our programming in compliance with CDC and DOH guidance - and used when distancing cannot be maintained.
  • Hand washing station are increased throughout the park.
  • DO NOT send your child with his/her own supply of hand sanitizer. We recognize the concerns of sanitizer use/abuse amongst children and encourage you to speak with the nursing staff if you have a concern or send a note with your child.
  • Multi-used items will be sanitized between groups (ie. sports equipment and picnic tables) or single use kits will be provided (ie. craft supplies).
  • Please send your child with a towel daily.

Swim Lesson
  • Swim lessons will be offered to day campers at no additional charge.
  • Lessons are a two week commitment.
  • Due to the pandemic - class sizes are reduced and lessons are limited to one session per camper - on a first come first serve basis. Lessons will be organized by the Parks & Recreation Office staff - not by the camp or pool staff.
  • Lessons will be limited to 4 campers per swim level per time slot.
  • If you are interested in swim lessons for your child, please add their name to the swim lesson wait list. No payment due at this time.
  • Confirmation of your child's swim lesson registration will be made the Thursday before the session starts. Payment will be due at the time of confirmation of registration and must be received to secure a spot on the roster.
  • Your child is welcome to join us for our regular day camp program if he/she doesn't get into swim lessons. We will work to accommodate as many young swimmers as possible.
