    CYSS 2014 Summer Camp Forms

    2014 Summer Waiting List & Fact Sheet Form

    It's that time of year again! It's time to start making summer camp plans for your child!

    The Child, Youth and School Services (CYSS) at Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) offers Active Duty Military, DoD Civilians, and Contractors a comprehensive set of programs to assist with summer childcare needs.

    Both the Aberdeen and Edgewood Summer Camp Programs consist of nine sessions, running from June 16 to August 15, Monday - Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The program is open to qualifying children completing kindergarten through 8th grade. Tuition fees are up to $142 per week based on the child's age and Total Family Income. Sessions run week to week, allowing parents to sign up for only the weeks when child care is needed.

    The APG Summer Camp programs are located at the APG Aberdeen and Edgewood Youth Centers. Campers will enjoy art, sports, games, computer labs and swimming. In addition, every week the entire camp goes on a special field trip. Past trips have included tours of DC area museums, amusement parks and everyone's summer favorite, the Harford County Farm Fair. Breakfast, lunch and snack are included in the tuition.

    The Parent Central Registration Office will start accepting waiting list forms on February 18, 2014 at 7:30 a.m. This form can be downloaded at (under CYSS Central Registration) or you can pick up the form at the Parent Central Registration Office (Bldg 2503, Rooms 210 & 211), Aberdeen Youth Center (Bldg 2522), Aberdeen CDC (Bldg 2485), Bayside CDC (Bldg 2521), Edgewood Youth Center (Bldg E1902) and Edgewood CDC (Bldg E1901) starting on February18. Completed forms may be faxed, emailed or dropped off per the form's instructions. Waiting List Forms will NOT be accepted at the Aberdeen or Edgewood YS or CDC centers.

    The Central Registration office will begin setting up appointments in March for Summer Camp Registration. Packets will be given to each individual who has scheduled an appointment.

    Families accepting a space in Summer Camp will not be required to pay a registration fee or make a deposit for camp. Patrons will however, sign a Commitment Agreement stating that they will later pay for all camp weeks which they initially selected at their registration appointment.

    For questions or further information, call the APG MWR CYSS Parent Central Registration office at 410-278-7479 or 7571.
