Annual Accident Report Form

As summer youth camps wind down, camp operators must submit their annual accident report forms immediately after the last day of camp but no later than September 15th. (N.J.A.C. 8:25-5.1(F)).  The Annual Accident Report Form is designed to inform the State Department of Health about all accidents and injuries which occur at an individual camp site over the season.  Failure to submit the information will result in a penalty carrying a fine of up to $1000.00

The Youth Camp Safety Project is the principal authority on matters relating to health and safety conditions at youth camps within the state. All youth camps must obtain a license issued by the Department prior to operating. Licensed youth camps are subject to pre-operational inspections (conducted by the local health authority) as well as operational inspections (conducted by the Public Health and Food Protection Program) to determine compliance with the Youth Camp Safety Standards rules.
