Licensed Day Camps

Our state-licensed full day camps are open when school is closed. Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring breaks and in-service days, too! Your kids don’t have to spend their days off stuck at home.

Required Paperwork

We have partnered with Camp Docs to automate camp paperwork including participant agreements, immunization records and medication administration needs.  This online portal will allow easier use for you and for camp staff and help us to ensure that all personal information is in a safe and secure place at all times. 

This service does come at an additional cost which will be a once a year $10 registration fee (fee increasing to $20 in 2019). You will have to pay this fee in order to get access to our online portal which will be required for participation of camps at South Suburban. We will no longer allow for paper copies of immunizations and past participation agreements to be submitted.  

Summer of 2019 Registration begins March 6 all registrations must be done through the registration office located at Goodson Recreation Center.  You can also call to register at 303.347.5999.
