Summer Playground Program

Our Summer Playground program is offered to Town of Clay residents only.  We are very grateful to our taxpayers for the opportunity to provide this program each summer at no cost to the participants. The child's legal address must be within the Town limits in order to attend.  You may be asked to provide proof of resideny when registering your child.  If it is determined that you are not a Town resident, the department may retract your registration to allow another resident child to participate. 

We are very excited to be holding this program again this summer since we had to cancel for the first time in over 40 years in 2020! As we ease back into full in-person programming, as well as limited staff availability, we have had to restructure the program.  This year, we will be offering two separate 3-week sessions.  In order to allow as many of our usual particiapnts to attend, we ask families to please choose ONE session. If there are open spots when registration closes, we will fill from our waitlist based on your intital registration time.

Immunization records (complete with dates administered) will need to be turned in to our office no later than May 31 in order to lock in your child's registration.  If your child has any medications that need to be kept on site (inhalers, epi pens, etc), a medical form will need to be filled out by the prescribing doctor and returned to our office. This form can be printed from the link below. Medication can be dropped off on the first day of camp.  Please provide medication in it's orginal packaging, clearly labeled with your child's name.

Please remember that our camp is sanctioned under the Onondaga County Heath Department and this is NOT a childcare program.  We are simply here to provide some summer fun for our local youth! Activites include structured game play, arts and crafts, water days, themed weeks and lots of fun!
