LaGrange Day Camp fills very quickly. It is suggested that you register online and not wait in line in person on registration day. Office staff use the same system everyone else uses. One of last year’s camp sessions sold out within minutes of opening and the others followed shortly thereafter. It is in your best interest to upload and fill out all the requirements in advance and be in your account, ready to purchase at 9am. Your cart holds for only 15 minutes. This will not guarantee a spot. See DAYCAMP REGISTRATION TIPS in blue sidebar.

Prior to 4:00pm on Friday, March 1st (there will be no account approvals the week of 3/4), we strongly suggest you:

  1. Access, update, or create your account and check to be sure your username and login work correctly and all potential campers are listed as members. Allow 48 hours for review.

    If you request a password reset and your account has multiple people with the same email address, you will receive a conflict message. Please contact the office PRIOR TO FRIDAY, 3/1

    for resolution at 845-452-1972 ext 2.

    Phone help will be limited on the day of camp registration.

  2. Upload your 2024 proof of residency to those you are looking to register for camp (tip: upload for all members on your account and be set to register for programs and events throughout the year!)
  3. Upload your child(ren)’s current immunization records from a doctor (within last 12 months). Be sure it’s legible and shows name, date, and all vaccines to date.  Immunization records will remain “pending” until review after registration.
  4. Complete the 2024 online health form for each child (see link to Online Health Form 2024 in blue bar at right). * Be sure to choose your child before filling out the form so it is attached to the correct person! *
  5. Be sure you know the address that is attached to the credit card you will use. If it is not the same as on your account, you will need to change the address on the credit card screen at check out or it will be declined. This will slow checkout. There is a 3.1% credit card fee charged by the merchant for all transactions.

Once a session is full, registrants will be waitlisted and know if they have a camp spot by Thursday, 3/28. The waitlist is not a first come, first served process. It is based on age group availability. For example, your 5 year old child may be the first on the waitlist but openings may be for the 12 year old group and the first 12 year old on the waitlist will be taken.

*** There are NO REFUNDS FOR LAGRANGE DAY CAMP unless we are able to fill the spot. ***


LaGrange Day Camp operates under the supervision of the Dutchess County Dept of Health

in accordance with NY State code. Our safety plan is available in the Recreation Office.
