Children’s Camps


Children’s Camps are classified as either Summer Day Camps or Children’s Overnight Camps.  The Erie County Health Department (ECDOH) inspects these camp facilities to make sure that they 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.
