Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some camps have been canceled and many of our planned programs and activities have been modified to meet the health and safety guidance from the County Health Department and the CDC. Below is the Summer Camp 2020 COVID-19 Procedures and Policies document. This document will be sent a link via ePACT for parents/guardians to review the new safety guidelines and help us keep everyone safe!

ePACT Digital Emergency Forms
City of Davis Parks and Community Services Department uses a software program called ePACT Network. This is an easy-to-use system that replaces the need for paper emergency and medical forms. With ePACT, you only need to do it once. If something changes, update your ePACT record and rest assured that we receive the update automatically. Each camp is equipped with a tablet that has access to the ePACT forms at a moment’s notice. You need to receive an initial email invitation or confirmation from the City of Davis. Once you complete the information we will receive it! To make changes to your records login at: www.epactnetwrork.com
Families that have previously used the software will need to reconfirm their account information in order for participants to attend camp. New families will receive an invite to create their account in early May. Families are required to update or complete their account in ADVANCE of camps starting to avoid any delay in their participants from checking in at camp. No paper versions will be accepted.
