Camp operators/directors must have a permit to operate a summer camp. You can apply for a permit or renew a permit online. Camps must renew their permit before they begin operating in the next summer season. If you need technical assistance submitting your online application, complete a technical assistance request.
In addition, new operators/directors must attend an NYC Health Department orientation session. If a camp will have aquatics activities, then the aquatics directors must also attend an aquatics orientation session. You can register for a session through the Health Department’s Online Service Registration page.
Operators/directors may apply for or renew a permit even if the camp operator/director has not yet attended an orientation.
