Required camp forms must be submitted in person or via mail before your child’s first day of camp. WE DO NOT ACCEPT FORMS VIA EMAIL. Your child will not be permitted to stay at camp if all required forms have not been turned in and reviewed by the camp registrar and nurse.
At Camp Seton we are sensitive to the needs of all our campers, including those who suffer from allergies. We are not a nut-free facility however we provide “food friendly” tables in our lunch area. These designated tables are nut-free and staff members check all lunches. If campers pack a lunch with peanut butter, they must eat in the designated lunch area. Snacks are permitted at camp but must be nut-free if consumed outside of a lunch area to help avoid cross contamination. Although staff is notified in advance of campers in their group with an allergy, we strongly encourage you and/or you child to speak directly with their counselor. “Recognizing of Anaphylaxis Symptoms” is part of our pre-camp training. CT State licensing requires that all campers that require special consideration submit a plan of action to the camp health office.
