Changes for this Summer:
1) You MUST have a shot record to attend camp. This will be enforced and your child will be sent home. It is a NY State Health mandate.
2) You will not be able to register without payment. The option for waiting until the day of will no longer be available.
NY State Day Camp regulations:
1) Medications/Prescriptions/Over the counter drugs: Anything from over the counter Tylenol to an epi-pen need a signed form from the child's health care provider saying what medication they're taking, when, and how often. It is up to our health director to administer and observe said medication during camp hours. Medications must be under the control of our designated health director at Tanglewood, and not kept on your child. Your child may not, at any time, keep any OTC drug or other prescription on them at all, except for inhalers, epi-pens, or any prescription preventing a life threatening illness. 2) A detailed medical history is needed for each child. Please provide as much medical data history as possible for each application.

What to expect at Summer Camp?
You can expect a variety of different weather. This is New York State where it can change minute to minute, so please make sure that your kids are prepared for any kind of weather. Also, you can expect a fair amount of outdoor time for your kids. Nature is the best classroom we have and it gives your child a refreshing new perspective on learning. Finally, you can expect that it might be a long day for your kids. Please make sure the get plenty of rest at night.
What to Bring?
Pack a lunch, a snack will be provided.
Proper clothing (rain jacket, sun tan lotion, hat, NO FLIP FLOPS).
A good attitude.
What is a typical day?
A typical day usually starts with a daily brain jog, where we play a wake up activity to get your kids warmed up. Then, we usually head outside immediately, if the weather is nice. If the weather looks bad, then we will stay inside and have a live animal show, or theme related arts/crafts. There are some programs, like Fishing Week, where no matter the weather (unless sleet, thunder/lightening, torrential downpours) you should expect that your kids will be outside quite a bit. We have lunch around Noon. Then, later in the afternoon, we often do arts/crafts and play games, and hike.
