Important things to Know when Registering your child:

During registration, the parent should sign off on the camp waiver and the code of conduct. They also receive the camper health history form and the Maryland Department of Health form.  Their receipt reads as follows:

Please complete and return the attached Camper Health History Form and Maryland Department of Health form to the recreation center no later than 72 hours after registration.  Upon turning in the attached forms you will be asked to present proof of residency. Acceptable proof of residency may be in the form of a utility bill, bank statement, driver’s license, income tax return, deed or rental agreement, proof of unemployment benefits, social security income, proof of guardianship or birth certificate.

Failure to return the completed forms with proof of residency in the 72 hours after registration will result in the removal of the participant from all camp activities (including trips) without a refund for the camp registration fee.

If you registered for summer camp but did not register for the accompanying camp trips session during online registration, you will be asked if you would like to register for the camp trips when you visit the recreation center.
