Please make every possible effort to ensure your child attends camp during the week(s) they are enrolled. Last summer, less than 1/2 of enrolled children actually attended which has threatened our Town of Owego funding. If this happens again, we may lose our funding and our ability to offer this wonderful FREE camp!


You must provide current immunization records with the application to be considered.  Phone pictures will not be accepted. Please note: The child's primary residence must pay taxes to the town or village of Owego for your child to be eligible for this camp.
