Prior to your child’s visit to camp you will receive an email from Camp Doc. This is where you can request a friend, sign waivers, and share medical information.

All forms must be filled out and signed by the parent or guardian. For summer campers, please sign the forms at least 3 weeks prior to the start of the summer camp session your child is attending.
