Information for Camp Attendees

Parent/Camper Handbook

Camp staff have created a handbook (PDF) (387 KB) that we hope answers many of the questions that parents and campers have about DEC summer camp. Please review the handbook and contact us if you have any additional questions. After registering your camper for this season you will receive a copy of the handbook with your registration confirmation email. Please save it and refer to as the summer approaches.

Operating Hours

Check-in for camp is between 3:00 PM and 4:00 PM on Sunday.
Camper pickup and closing ceremony is at 4:30 PM on Friday.
