  • Full and Half Day Camp
    Epi Pen Program


    TThe Town of Clifton Park Day Camp Program has once again applied for a New York State Department of Health permit to administer Epi-pens at all full day and half day camp sites. Several children with allergies have been able to attend camp thanks to the Epi-pen program. Through the American Red Cross, we have staff trained at each site, with supervision by our Health Director. Information on this program will be available at Town Hall, our website and in the Parent Handbook. Please call 371-6667 with questions.
