Registration Form

Double Check Your Calendar


Our camp is FULL! Make sure you are registered for the weeks you need, and cancel any weeks you have vacation/family plans. Sorry we can't accommodate "drop-ins." Any cancellations or enrollment changes made after June 1 will incur a $25 administrative fee.


Cancellation Policy

If you are registered for a week of camp that you need to cancel, you must let us know at least ten full business days in advance. For example: If your child is registered for the week of July 26, you must notify us by 8:00am on Monday, July 12 in order to receive a refund. If you do not give us two weeks’ notice we will NOT be able to offer a refund, as we have to schedule our staff and activities and pay for field trips in advance based on enrollment. All cancellations must be made through the Youth, Parks & Recreation office (831-1001). Any cancellations or enrollment changes made after June 1 will incur a $25 administrative fee.

Immunization & Physical Records - Including COVID-19 Vaccinations


Please turn these into us ASAP if you have not already done so, along with the Online Camper Pre-Registration Form


If your child has received a COVID-19 vaccination, we also need a record of this. You can send us a copy or photo of their vaccination card.


You can email your forms to us at jefferson@tonawanda.ny.us, fax them to us at 831-1006, or mail/drop off to 299 Decatur Road.

CDC Summer Camp Guidelines/Recommendations We Will Be Following At Camp:


  • Masks encouraged when indoors if not eating or drinking, if not fully vaccinated.
  • Unvaccinated staff, visitors, and parents/guardians should wear a mask while at camp. Fully vaccinated staff and adults are encouraged to model mask wearing when campers are encouraged to wear masks.
  • If vaccinated, we should have proof of vaccination on file.
  • Outside parent drop-off/pick-up - no parents inside
  • Group size limits still apply; stable groups with limited mingling
  • Shared supplies & equipment will be limited - cleaning & sanitizing between uses
  • Field trip options are limited - hiking, buy-outs - no interaction with public

Collecting Recyclables!


If you have any empty paper towel/toilet paper rolls and empty water bottles you can bring in for projects, we’d appreciate it!
