In an effort to increase the safety of the children in recreation programming, the City and the Recreation Department is implementing procedures for sign-in campers when they arrive to camp  and the releasing of campers at the end of each camp/program day. The Procare system is the program that parents/guardians use to sign children in and out of the program. For more information about the Release of Child Procedures, please feel free to contact someone in the Recreation Department at 440-775-7254.
