FAQ PSDC-2020

Can I register for one week or just a few days a week?


Sorry, no. You may select one, two, or all three 2-week sessions. Daily registration is not available.




Will my child stay in the same group?


Campers will remain in the same group in any session.

We will do the best we can to keep children who are enrolled in multiple sessions in the same group.




What will my child wear to camp?


Your child will receive 5 PSDC T-shirts on their first day of attendance. Our campers wear a camp T-shirt, shorts, and sneakers. From time to time, you will receive an email suggesting optional dress-up to go along with one of our theme days.




Will camp provide lunch?


No, campers bring lunch from home. We will provide snack in the afternoon consisting of an individual container of fruit juice and a commercially pre-packaged item such as cookies, baked chips, or pretzels.




Can I drop-off later or pick-up early?


It is important that you drop-off and pick-up on time. If you, on occasion, need an accomodation please contact our office.




Can I cancel my child’s registration?


Enrollments are final. Fees are not refundable for any reason whatsoever.




Tell me about your staff.


The majority of our staff will be returning from prior summers. We expect that most, if not all, of our groups will be headed up by experienced supervisors or returning head counselors and staffed by returning counselors. We will have more specialists than ever! All directors and assistant directors will be hands-on and on-site.

Amongst our staff, there are many who grew up here as campers!




Will children and staff be required to wear face coverings?


CAMPERS
Per NYS guidelines, campers are not required to wear face coverings when they are with their cohort (groups.) PSDC will provide face coverings for campers to wear during drop-off and pick-up, bathroom runs and other transitions within camp, and anytime we might leave the premises.


STAFF
Per NYS guidelines, staff are required to wear face coverings at all times, except when on breaks and not in the vicinity of others.




What is your immunization policy?


We require our campers and staff to be fully immunized in accordance with New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene regulations, with the sole exception of those who have a current medical exemption for a specific immunization or immunizations from their primary care physician. Notwithstanding the forgoing limited exemption for other illnesses, we will not enroll (and may withdraw or terminate) a camper or hire a staff member who is not vaccinated against measles or against any other current outbreak or epidemic.




Will you go to Prospect Park?


We hope so! We are waiting on guidance from the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.
