Letter to Parents - 2023

Dear Parents:
Monmouth County Park System staff is eagerly anticipating welcoming your child to camp this summer! I am happy to provide the following information on the measures currently in place to assure that your child has a healthy, safe and enjoyable camp experience.
Important Reminders   
  • Please complete your camper’s information (camp forms) in ePACT prior to coming to camp.
  • Do not send your child to camp if they are ill.
  • Please complete a daily home screening with your child prior to attending camp each day.
  • Please encourage proper handwashing hygiene and respiratory etiquette.

Daily Home Health Screenings   
Prior to arrival at camp every day, each parent/guardian is asked to complete a daily screening with their child(ren) at home to identify signs of illness. Campers who have a communicable disease or are feeling ill will not be permitted to attend camp. If a camper has a communicable disease, a doctor’s written clearance will be required to return to camp.

Return to Camp Policy   
Medical clearance from a doctor is necessary for a camper to return to camp for the following situations:
  • A camper was out of camp due to a concussion.
  • A camper had/has a broken bone.
  • A camper had/has a sports injury.
  • A camper had a serious illness or communicable disease.
The clearance form must specifically state that the camper is cleared for all activities on a definitive date.
Camp Information
If you have not already done so, please create your account on ePACT and complete your camper’s information. If you need to complete any paper special accommodation camp forms, a link to the forms can be found on our Camp Forms webpage. If you attended camp with us last year and already have an ePACT account, please review and update your camper’s information. If you signed up children other than your own, please make sure their parent/guardian contacts us so we can send them an invite to ePACT to fill out their camper’s information.
Many of our camps have specific policies, such as what to bring lists, schedules, and drop off/pick up information to help you prepare for your child’s camp visit. To find out more information regarding your child’s camp, you can access these camp information sheets on our Camp Forms webpage.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in the parks!
