Adventure Camp Enrollment Rule
In order to ensure each child gets a chance to participate in our camps, on the sign up day you will be allowed to sign your child up for only one session of any particular Adventure Camp. If you would like your child to participate in multiple sessions of a camp, their name will be placed at the bottom of the waiting list. If a spot becomes available, you will be called and your child may attend that camp if you are still interested.
Adventure Camps Special Note
Our camps do not meet the definition of children’s camps under New York State regulations; therefore, they are not regulated by the NYS Department of Health. An Assumption Of Risk Waiver Form (PDF, 296kb) is required and must be signed by a parent or guardian for all camp participants and submitted to the Sports Center two weeks in advance of the camp starting date.
Member registration for Summer Adventure Camps will start Saturday, May 13 at 8:00am in the Main Lobby (an Adventure Department staff person will be present to answer questions). Initially, a parent or guardian is only allowed to register members of one family. If you are also acting as a proxy for a friend or relative, you must return to the end of the line.
Non-member registration will begin Saturday, May 20 at 8:00am at the Main Desk. Fill out the Adventure Camp registration form found at the end of this brochure and submit it with your payment to the Main Desk staff.
How To Register
Both members and non-members need to fill out the 2017 Adventure Camp registration form (PDF, 32kb) and submit it with your payment at the time of registration.

- You will then pass the Fenimore House Art Museum, on your right.
- Continue less than 0.1 miles until you pass the Yellow Trolley Lot, on your right. Look for the Biological Field Station sign.
