ePACT Network - Emergency Contact Software

Charlottesville Parks & Recreation is proud to announce our adoption of ePACT Network for better safety! ePACT is a secure emergency network, that we will use to collect medical and emergency contact information electronically. Not only will ePACT replace paper forms, but it will also ensure we have a way to communicate with you in the event of an unexpected situation.

Why are we using ePACT?
  • To save you time - With ePACT, you only need to complete your child’s information once, and can then use that same record for other programs or subsequent years
  • Improved privacy and security – Eliminating paper forms ensures that your key information is safe and secure. ePACT maintains the same levels of security as online banking, and limits access only to the administrators we assign for enhanced privacy.
  • Better support – ePACT makes it easy for you to share comprehensive health and emergency contact details, so we can provide the best support to your child. Plus, you can update this anytime and we will automatically receive those new details.
How it works
  • You’ll receive an email invite to share information with Charlottesville Parks & Recreation.
  • Click ‘Complete Request’ to create a free account, or log-in if you already have an existing ePACT account.
  • Enter the required information, like medical conditions, and share it with Charlottesville Parks & Recreation so that program staff have access.
  • For ePACT assistance, please review their informational packet »

Activity and Field Trip Schedules

April 8       Swim at Smith Aquatic Center

April 9       Field trip to Massanutten Family Adventure Park, Massanutten, VA

  • Departure: 9:00 am
  • Return: 4:00 pm
  • Trip includes the Kids’ Adventure Course, 2 attempts on the climbing wall, 2 summer tubing rides and a quick jump leap. Children must be at least 50 pounds to participate in the harnessed activities. ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST WEAR CLOSED TOED SHOES. NO FLIP FLOPS.

Make sure you pack a swimsuit, towel and a change of clothes for pool visits. Campers have the option to stay at Carver and skip swimming if desired.

All campers and staff attend field trips. If your child misses the field trip bus in the morning, they will not be able to attend camp that day.

Campers are STRONGLY DISCOURAGED from bringing money on field trips. No money will be required for admission, food, or otherwise on the field trip. Please consider the risk associated with choosing to send money with your child on a field trip; camp staff and management are not responsible for lost or stolen money or purchases associated with this decision. No time is allotted for shopping while on field trips.

You may accompany your child on a field trip if it is strongly desired. You must provide your own transportation to and from the field trip location and must pay your own admission fee. While with us on a field trip, all camp rules continue to apply to your child unless you sign them out of camp for the day. You may not buy food for other campers while on a field trip. If the bus is running late returning from a field trip, a text alert will be sent via ePACT.


Parents/guardians must provide campers with a lunch and snacks each day.
