Offering a Summer Camp for Children?
Important! A permit from the Health Department is required to operate a camp. A camp is defined by MA regulation* based on the amount of time it runs and the use of the word “camp.”
If you are thinking of offering a program for children this summer, know that a permit is required if the program is:
- Advertised as a camp.
- Offered for more than 2 hours a day and
- operates at least 4 days over a 2 week period.
*There are limited exceptions defined in the camp regulations.
For more information, please visit: Camp Info or call the Winchester Health Department at 781-721-7121.
