Children’s Camps


Children’s Camps are classified as either Summer Day Camps or Children’s Overnight Camps.  The Erie County Health Department conducts inspections of these camp facilities to protect the health of camp patrons by ensuring children’s camps maintain a safe facility with adequate supervision.

To determine if your camp requires a permit to operate as a Children’s Camp refer to NYS Sanitary Code Subpart 7-2.2 Definitions or contact our office at (716) 961-6800.
