For Children Entering Gr. K-4 in Fall 2019 (Re-designed this year!!)


Summer Fun Camp consists of seven one-week sessions. Each week there will be a special theme, a planned field trip and a field day of activities at Sycamore Hills Recreation Area. Every day offers a wide variety of sports, arts & crafts, group games, free play and afternoon swim up to two days a week.  Swimming is fully supervised by our ARC Certified Lifeguards. Participants can sign up for one week at a time or for all seven sessions. One tee shirt will be issued per child for the summer to be worn on field trip days. Campers should bring a lunch, snacks, drinks, water bottle, sun block, swim suit and towel. Everything should be labeled with the camper's name. A backpack is recommended. No electronic devices are permitted - leave them home. Min. 35: Max. 50.

The Registration deadline for Summer Day Camps is the THURSDAY prior to the start of the session. Anyone registering after the Thursday dead
line, will be charged the full amount plus a $25 late fee.

Please note that, many times, the registration fills up prior to the Thursday deadline. If this happens, you will need to complete the registration to place your child on the wait list. Wait lists will be evaluated by the end of the week to see if anyone can be moved into the camp. You will be notified only if there is room and payment will be required at that time.

Program fees will not be pro-rated for any reason.

The Recreation Department reserves the right to change or re-schedule trips due to unforseen circumstances and to change the maximums on programs as necessary.

The link to our Summer Fun Camp 2019 Parent Handbook is located below.  Please read through this handbook prior to camp.

Parents will also receive an email with the Camp Newsletter the Friday prior to the Camp start date. Please read this newsletter as it will provide the schedule for the week and any important such as waivers that need to be completed. 


The Avon Recreation and Parks Department welcomes persons with disabilities in all programs and services.

Please indicate when you register your child if they have any Allergy/Medical information.  Remember we are not part of Avon Public Schools and do not have access to your child's medical records or their medications. If you would like our staff to hold medication for your child (Epi Pen, inhalers), please email our office and make arrangements for a med plan to be put in place. Our staff is trained in First Aid/CPR, and Epi Pen administration at our Summer Camp programs.

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.

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.
