RAYMOND P. LAVIETES UNIT SUMMER CAMP
Join our Summer Camp mailing list to stay up to date all summer long!
Welcome to 2020 Summer Camp!
Our Raymond P. Lavietes Unit runs a weekly Summer Camp in our air-conditioned Clubhouse at One Positive Place in Shelton. Our Camp is licensed by the State of Connecticut, and our staff are certified in first aid and CPR. Children will participate in a variety of activities throughout the day, including arts and crafts, outdoor activity—including our Splash Pad—indoor exercise, movies, and educational activities. Each week will feature a special theme.
Our Seymour and Ansonia families are all invited and welcome to attend camp at our Raymond P. Lavietes Unit in Shelton.
Though this site gives an overview of our Summer Camp program, parents must read our Summer Camp Parent Handbook (click on the image to the right) for complete information about our policies. Parents must also read our Summer Camp 2020 COVID-19 Handbook, Informed Consent and Acknowledgement & Waiver of Liability, and Bring Your Own Device policy (click on the images to the right).

Full payment is due at registration. Payments may only be made with a credit/debit card online. No in-person payments will be accepted, no cash, no checks.
Weekly rate only, no daily rates.
In order to meet a demand that may far exceed our enforced capacity, registration will be first come, first served. Once we reach the 80th registration, applicants will be placed on a waiting list. You will have two business days to provide your child(ren)’s physical form and, for any 5 year olds, a copy of their birth certificate (do not give us your original).
If the full payment AND required forms are not received within 2 business days of registration, your child will be moved to the end of the waiting list. We are only accepting online debit/credit card payments this year; payments must be made online through our website. No cash or checks will be accepted. To pay for additional weeks of camp, click the green payment button at the top of the page.

The Boys & Girls Club will not confirm your child’s registration; parents may confirm registration by emailing your Unit Director:
Care4Kids applications can be found on the Care4Kids website at www.CTcare4kids.com, or you may call them at 888-214-5437. The Boys & Girls Club does not provide Care4Kids applications. Parents/guardians must complete the Parent Provider Agreement before emailing it to your Unit Director to complete our portion. When it is ready, we will email the form back to you so you can send it in. The Boys & Girls Club will not submit any Care4Kids forms. When registering, if you have not yet received your Child Care Certificate, the full tuition amount must be paid, and the full tuition amount must continue to be paid until the Child Care Certificate is received. When the Child Care Certificate is received, parents must contact Lisa Smith, Membership Coordinator, to discuss the balance they will be responsible for paying. Care4Kids does not cover the entire tuition, and parents will be responsible for the balance. If there are any reimbursements due to you for payments made while waiting for Care4Kids, reimbursement will be made after Care4Kids reimburses our Boys & Girls Club. Please be patient as this reimbursement could take several months.
Late Pickup Policy
Once the summer camp day ends, our staff leave the building. We rely on parents to pick their children up promptly. Should parents be late for any reason, there will be a $15 late fee if you arrive between 6:01-6:15, and an additional $5 will be charged every 15 minutes thereafter. This fee must be paid the next morning or the member will not be allowed to attend camp. No exceptions. Repeated violations could lead to termination of camp enrollment. Please see the Summer Camp Parent Handbook for complete policy.
Campers may have the free breakfast and lunch that are provided by our Boys & Girls Club, or they may bring their own food from home (please label all your child's belongings with first and last names). Food must be packed in a lunchbox with an ice pack. Members should bring their own water bottle with enough water to last the entire day. Refrigeration and microwaving is not available to members. Please note we are not a peanut free facility.
If your child requires an epi-pen or inhaler, a completed Authorization for the Administration of Medicine form must be submitted with the medication. Children requiring these medicines may not attend without one of these properly completed forms. The Boys & Girls Club does not accept or administer any other medications. We will, however, make reasonable accommodations for a parent or guardian to come administer any other needed medications. We must know of any medications your child takes, even at home, in case of emergency. Please note that we are not a peanut-free facility.
Due to the restrictions and limitations of COVID-19, we are unable to offer trips this summer. The COVID-19 limitation of only 10 children per bus would make the price unrealistic, and many attractions are not open. We look forward to offering trips again next summer.
