Important Parent Information
  1. In addition to filling out the 2016 registration form at the office, parents are required to turn in a completed Chicopee Parks Department medical or similar doctor's form prior to the child's starting of the program.
  2. Falsification of information (i.e age/date of birth, residency) on the registration form will result in immediate dismissal from the program.
  3. Groups during the summer are formed by age. If you have any requests, it must be noted on the child's registration form. Please note that these are requests and all of them may not be fulfilled based on our numbers. No changes will be made to groups during the summer. No requests for children that are not of the same age.
