Camp-Day @ Syracuse Chiefs game
Our Summer Day Camps are six week programs, running from 9:30 - 3:00 PM, at Santaro Park and Wheeler Elementary School. Children will participate in a variety of activities and special events. When registering, please make sure that all information you have provided on your account and during registration is correct. Provide two emergency contacts in addition to your own contact information as well as all pertinent medical information about your child (allergies, injuries, medication etc.).

Participant T-Shirts will be handed out on-site.

See information below regarding registering participants 5 years old.

Field trip fees are not included in registration.


We have made the transition to a sanctioned Day Camp, so parents now need to provide a completed medical history and copy of your child's immunization records from your health care provider or doctor. The forms and information can be emailed to or printed and mailed/dropped off to our office at: 4834 Velasko Rd. Syracuse, NY 13215  

Staff are not authorized to apply sunscreen, insect repellent, or administer medication**.  If you would like your child to wear sunscreen or insect repellent, please answer "yes" when asked that question when registering.  Your child should keep it in their personal bag and apply as needed.  Otherwise, sunscreen and bug spray should be applied before arriving at camp. 

If your child has a prescription for an Epi-Pen and/or inhaler, we require documentation from their doctor as well as written parent consent.  If your child has either an Epi-Pen or inhaler prescribed to them, they are required to have it on site.  Certified staff may "assist" in the use of emergency medication such as  epinephrine pens or inhalers, but are not allowed to administer prescribed or over the counter medication for any other reason.  If your child needs to take medication daily/weekly/with lunch/etc.., they should be able to administer it by themselves.

Registration is NOT COMPLETE until all questions have been answered, payment is received in full, and the office has received a copy of your child's health history (most recent physical)and immunization information that has been signed by your doctor. If your child does not have up-to-date vaccinations, parents or guardians are required to provide a written, signed statement as to why their child has not received their regular vaccinations. This letter needs to be submitted to complete your child's registration.
