New York State is developing air quality guidance for Children's Camps for the 2023 wildfire season. Preliminary guidance is included below.
New York State has not released 2023 COVID-19 guidance for Children's Camps. Last year's guidance is included below. Camps will be notified by email if new guidance is received.
Children's Camps (including day camps and overnight camps) are regulated by the Department of Health to ensure the health and safety of participants and staff. Camps are required to submit plans and forms every year, and camps are inspected at least twice annually.
If you have questions about a Children's Camp in Livingston County, please contact the Center for Environmental Health Monday-Friday, 8am to 4pm. See more information about Children's Camps in New York State from the New York State Department of Health.
Below are forms used by Children's Camp Operators.
New in 2022: New York State enacted Chapter 85 of the Laws of 2010, regulating the use of pesticides at schools, day cares, and children's camps. See guidance from the Department of Environmental Conservation on the use of pesticides at schools, day cares, and children's camps here.
