Parent Check List

We want to make sure your summer camp week at Chelsea Piers is seamless. Everything you need to know for your upcoming camp week is below.


Mask Policy for Campers

In compliance with the NYC Department of Health guidelines for youth sports, all campers are required to wear a protective face covering and practice social distancing at all times and throughout Chelsea Piers facilities. Please bring a bag for your mask for safekeeping during such activities. Please make sure to send you child to camp with a protective face covering and an extra face covering in their backpack or bag. Face coverings should be clearly marked with your child's name.

Recreation Activities

Activities vary by the day. You will receive a detailed email from your child's Camp Director with your child's full recreation schedule for the week.

What to Bring

In addition to what you wear/pack for your child's sport focus, please pack the following items:

  • Sneakers
  • Face masks
  • Water bottle
Please note that you will receive a specific email from your child's Camp Director each week if they need to bring in anything specific.

Lunch Menu

Daily hot lunch is served by our partners at Abigail Kirsch Catering. All servers wear gloves. We are an allergy conscious camp and do not serve any peanut products. Gluten Free and Vegetarian Options available.



Directional Signage

Upon arrival, please follow the camp signage that will direct you and your family towards your camp entrance.


Camp families have 20 minutes grace period to drop-off campers.

Vaccination Requirements

Chelsea Piers coaches and staff are 100% vaccinated. All campers ages 12+ must show proof of vaccination upon arrival to their first day of camp. Please click here for full proof of vaccination requirements.

Facility Access

In order to maximize safety, this summer Camp parents may not enter the facility. We will have staff available to greet your child and bring them to their designated camp. Please discuss this new protocol in advance with your child.

Staff Health Protocols

All camp staff and coaches are 100% vaccinated and are required to wear protective face coverings at all times. Camp staff shall also practice enhanced handwashing and health practices, including covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the corner of the elbow and assisting children with such increased handwashing and healthy practice throughout the camp day.

Social Distancing

As much as possible small camp groups will be socially distant from each other.

Camp activities will be designed to provide sufficient spacing to allow for social distancing of campers. Coaches will provide instruction with "hands-on" only when necessary to ensure safety.

Enhanced Disinfecting Procedures

For the safety and protection of our campers, our cleaning and maintenance protocol will continue to be maintained at the highest standard throughout the property. Our teams have increased the frequency of these processes, upgraded our supplies and disinfectants to comply with CDC guidelines and new industry standards, and increased the visibility and number of hand sanitizing stations. Chelsea Piers maintenance staff, coaches and counselors will also be responsible for wiping down and disinfecting any and all shared sports equipment between sessions throughout the day.

Limited Use of Locker Rooms and Controlling Restroom Occupancy

To prevent overcrowding in locker rooms and restrooms, we will have limited occupancies in all locker rooms and restrooms. Locker rooms will be for changing-only at this time and a Chelsea Piers staff attendant will monitor occupancy levels at all times to comply with social distancing regulations.

Sick Room

In the event a child feels ill or shows symptoms of illness during their time at Summer Camp, there will be a designated sick room at each venue where the child will be escorted for their safety and the safety of others. As in normal circumstances, parents will be notified immediately to arrange for pick-up. A staff member will remain near the child for supervision.

Notification Policy

Chelsea Piers will follow State and/or Board of Health requirements to support notification and contact tracing protocols.



The New York City Board of Health requires completed medical forms for Summer Camps. Please complete the Medical Form above and send with your child on his/her first day of camp or email it to us at
