Medical Conditions (Allergies, Medications, etc)
  • Your child's safety is important to us. Please be sure to include all medical conditions (ex: allergies, asthma, dietary restrictions, medications) that you feel we should be aware of on your child's account information. This will be pulled into your child's registration so that our staff may review it prior to camp.
  • Changes made on your account to your child's medical information must be made by the Wednesday prior to camp. Please notify the Camp Director if you make a change after the Wednesday prior to camp so that our rosters can be updated.
  • Deerfield Township staff are not permitted to administer medication. If your child needs medication during program hours, staff may hold the medication until the child asks for it. Staff can not be responsible for reminding children of medication times or the administration of any medication.
  • Deerfield Township values all children. If your child needs special assistance during program hours, please speak with our Camp Director so that we may work together to determine feasible accommodations and to ensure a positive experience for your child.

Check In/Out
  • Authorized adults must be indicated on the child's camp registration and a valid photo ID is required at the time of pick up.
  • For youth 12 years and older, parents/guardians may submit an additional signed waiver to allow their child to sign themselves out and leave camp without adult supervision. The Optional Release for Youth 12 Years and Older must be submitted to the Camp Director at least 3 business days prior to the first day of camp. Youth without this signed release are required to be picked up by an authorized adult.
  • Camps at Kings Mills Elementary/Carter Park: Please sign in and out from Kings Mills Elementary. (We will walk next door to Carter Park during camp. No street crossings; the paved park path links directly to KME.)
