SUMMER CAMP IN WHITE PLAINS!
Residents: APPLY NOW for Lottery Selection
White Plains, NY – January 3, 2022. Applications for summer day camp will be available to residents only beginning Monday, January 10, 2022. Due to high demand for summer camp slots, the Recreation Department will once again be using a lottery system to select campers for each of our camps.
In order to be part of the lottery, a completed camp application must be submitted to the Recreation Department by Friday, February 4, 2022. NO MONEY is required at the time of application submittal. Only completed applications with immunization records will be accepted for the lottery. If your child has an IEP or 504, these documents must also be attached to your applications. Individuals requesting a scholarship, if selected, MUST have their 2021 Completed Federal Tax Forms or proof of SSI by payment deadline of March 1, 2022.
Selection will be made the week of February 7th. If selected, you will be notified by phone and a $250 deposit will be due by March 1. Deposits are non-refundable. Payment in full will be due by May 4th. Failure to meet these deadlines may result in the cancellation of your application.
**Grade-eligible siblings attending the same camp will be accepted if selected. We cannot consider siblings at different camps. No Exceptions.
**For all camps we will allow you to request ONE friend to be in your child’s group, however the other family must also have the same request on their application, be selected in the lottery, and both children must be attending the same session(s) to be considered.
