Avon Recreation and Parks Department
Special Accommodations Policy
The Avon Recreation and Parks Department welcomes persons with medical conditions and/or disabilities in all programs and services. If you or your child require reasonable accommodations to a recreation program in order to participate, please indicate this on your registration form or when you register online under the "medical conditions" section of your account and call the Recreation and Parks Department at least 3 weeks prior to the start of the program at 860-409-4332.
Please be aware that if you fail to or choose not to notify us of any issues that require accommodations, it may delay or inhibit you or your child from participating in the program.
Summer Camp Programs:
- Medical Support - The Recreation and Parks Department does not have medical support for our programs. During the time when we are partnering with the Board of Education, we may be able to access their medical support. Medical support will not be available when participants are off site such as swimming or on field trips. Parents/caregivers are welcome to be present during those off site events. Parents must coordinate their plans with our Special Needs Director or Program Coordinator.
- Para-Professional Support – Support staff will only be available from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. for our summer camp programs. Support for extended day programs will not be available.
- Special Assistance - Campers needing special assistance may be limited to the amount of programs they can attend dependent upon the demand for support services and staff availability. This policy will ensure that everyone who wants to participate will have an opportunity to take part in integrated fun programs.
