Welcome to South Windsor Parks & Recreation's Day Camps!
We take pride in our camp programs, and each is uniquely designed to fit you and your child's needs. This summer, we will have three camp programs held at SWPRD's home base: Wapping Parks and Recreation Facility! We are pleased with the convenience of having a one-stop-shop for all camps at this cohesive location and are excited that each camp will continue to remain its own separate entity. We believe summer camp is about having fun, making friendships, teamwork, and of course, recreating! We can't wait to see you there!

Every year, campers must fill out a health history form with updated information prior to the start of camp. Continuing this year, to the convenience of our users and camp staff, we are using online forms through ePACT. Having registered for a camp program, you will receive an email prompting you to fill out the necessary paperwork online about a week or two prior to the start of your session. If we do not have your medical form, your child will not be able to attend camp for safety reasons. Our forms do not require a doctor's signature.
Full-Time RN For Camps
Continuing this year, we will have a registered nurse on-site during all program hours. This nurse will be available for Little Explorers, Camp Discovery, and Adventure Unit while they are on site. We will continue the medical administration and first aid training of our management staff and have an acting first aid responder when and if camps travel offsite for field trips. Our camps nurses' email is Nurse.email@example.com
Our staff is the strength of our day camps. We continuously have a competitive hiring pool for top-of-the-line employees. Our counselors have the ability to make connections with your children on the playground, highlight the value of teamwork during group game activities and teach patience and creativity during arts & crafts, all while acting as mentors to our campers. Additionally, all camp personnel is trained in standard first aid, and CPR and have training on blood-borne pathogens, child development, child abuse recognition, and reporting, diversity awareness, positive discipline, games, leadership, and much more.
