Summer Camp Reminders

The following are a few of the Frequently Asked Questions about sending a camper to a week of our Youth Camp.

  • Over the Counter Doctors Orders/Immunization Record

    All campers MUST have this form in order for the nurse to dispense any medicines to your camper.  Even if your camper has been to camp for several years, New York State REQUIRES us to obtain a new copy of the Over the Counter Dr.'s Orders (this is downloadable form), as well as a new copy of the immunization record for the camper.  Many of the area doctor offices are accustomed to this, and are more than happy to fax these two documents to us at (716)287-2216.  As faxes machines tend to be unpredictable when we need them most, they can also be emailed to office@bethanycamp.org

  • Registration - SUNDAY EVENING

    We begin registration on Sunday at 6:30 PM.   You may arrive early, but will not be able to begin the registration process prior to 6:30 PM.  Anyone who has ALL medical, and payments complete will be sent to the EXPRESS REGISTRATION, so it pays to get your information to camp PRIOR to your camper's arrival.  

  • Youth Camp Ending Time - FRIDAY EVENING

    Our week of youth camp ends Friday evening.  We will show the Week in Review video beginning at 6:30 PM, and welcome any parents/guardians to join us for the viewing.  Following the conclusion of the video, you can sign your camper out by showing your photo ID to your camper's counselor.  If someone other than yourself will be picking up your camper, please make sure that they are listed on the APPROVED PICK UP list of names.  They must still show their photo ID as well.
