General Camp Information

List of 10 frequently asked questions.

  • Registration

    Please register your child for camp using our easy online system. Please call the Camp Director at 860-727-5032 if you have any questions. Please complete all forms on the portal at the time of registration.
  • How the camp week runs

    Campers will choose one sport per week and they will be placed in a group that will stay together for the entire week. Each session is 2. 5 hours in length. This group will be based on age first then ability level. All sports camps will focus heavily on skill development with some playing time at the end of each session to reinforce the instructional elements learned that day. There will be water/snack and bathroom breaks assigned for each group and we ask that your child bring their own water bottle and a non-perishable snack each day.
  • Snack and water/beverage

    Campers will bring their water bottles and non-perishable snacks each day in a backpack or drawstring bag. There will be water stations on each field where campers can refill their water bottles. Children will leave for the day before lunch.
  • Health, Safety and Required Forms

    The health and safety of our campers and staff are of paramount importance to us. We will follow all health and safety protocols set forth by the OEC’s Youth Camp Guidelines.

    A certified first-aid responder will be on campus at all times to handle any injuries or illness and will collaborate with the camp's medical director should additional care be needed. If a child comes to camp with a fever about 100 degrees or has any symptoms of illness, they will not be allowed at camp for the day. If a camper shows any signs of illness during camp, they will either be placed in an isolated room or in an outdoor shaded area away from all other campers. until the parent can come for pick up. The first-aid responder will stay with that child until the parent arrives.

    This includes inhalers, epi-pens, glucagon injectors.

Please complete in full the online health form during registration. Both the form and the device (in its original packaging with prescription label) should be in the child’s backpack each day. Each coach will have a list of their campers who have an inhaler or epi-pen.
