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 are safe and have proper supervision.

To find out if your camp requires a permit to operate as a Children’s Camp, see the NYS Sanitary Code Subpart 7-2.2 Definitions or contact our office at (716) 961-6800.
