ChildCamper camper2

A child’s camp is defined as Summer day camp which shall mean a property consisting of a tract of land and any tents, vehicles, buildings, or other structures that may be pertinent to its use, any part of which may be occupied on a scheduled basis at any time between June 1 and September 15 in any year by children under 16 years of age, under general supervision, for the purpose of indoor or outdoor organized group activities, involving two or more activities of which at least one is a nonpassive recreational activity with significant risk of injury, as defined in subdivision 7-2.2(l) of this Subpart, for a period of less than twenty-four hours on any day the property is so occupied, and/or which no provisions are made for overnight occupancy by such children.

The permit-issuing official or his representative determines that closing of a children’s camp is necessary to protect the public health or safety of the occupants of the camp. Where a public health hazard is found on the property, the building or portion of the property constituting the hazard shall be placarded against occupancy until the hazard is corrected.
