The Town of Oyster Bay is pleased to announce that registration for 2023 Summer Recreation will performed online this year. In an effort to simplify the process, the Town’s Parks Department is now accepting all necessary documentation, including proof of residency, child’s birth certificates, recent physicals and immunization to be uploaded to the TOB Portal. This process is mandatory and ends on March 15th. Once all documentation has been properly uploaded, parents/guardians will receive notification of approval to register, as well as
instructions for online registration.

 

This year’s Summer Recreation Program will once again include full-day options as well as the traditional
program for children ages 4 through 12. Space is limited at each facility.

 

How to pre-register (note: pre-registration does not guarantee a spot in this year’s Summer Recreation Program.
Parents will need to perform final registration this spring)

 

1. Parents/Guardians will visit www.oysterbaytown.com/portal and log in to their account or create a new
account. If your child was registered in the 2022 Summer Recreation program, you already have an account.

 

2. After logging in, select My Account, then Household & Member. Confirm all family members are listed. If
needed, select Add Family Member at the bottom of the page to add a child or guardian to the household.
Next, select Add Emergency Contact, and fill in the required information (name and phone number) Select
SAVE.

 

3. Select DOCUMENT UPLOAD from the Portal menu. Each document must be uploaded as separate files.
Please make sure scanned documents are legible.

Required Documents:
Proof of Residency (Tax Bill or Utility Bill)
Child’s Birth Certificate
Child’s Immunization Records (full-time campers only)
Child’s Recent Physical (full-time campers only)

After each upload, scroll back to the top of the page where you will see green highlighted text: “Document
successfully uploaded.” The upload form will refresh after every upload.

 

4. Upload your Proof of Residency. Select ‘Link to Household’ as your upload option. Select the type of
document you are uploading (tax bill, utility bill), choose the file to be uploaded and select Upload.

 

5. Upload your Child’s Birth Certificate. Select your Child’s name from the drop down under Upload Option.
Select Birth Certificate as the document you are uploading, choose the file to be uploaded and select Upload

 

6. Upload your Child’s Immunization Records if applying for full time camp. Select your Child’s name from
the drop down under Upload Option. Select Immunization as the document you are uploading, choose the
file to be uploaded and select Upload.

 

7. Upload your Child’s Physical if applying for full time camp. Select your Child’s name from the drop down
under Upload Option. Select Physical as the document you are uploading, choose the file to be uploaded and

Repeat steps 5 through 7 for each child you plan to enroll.

 

8. After ALL documentation has been uploaded, select the link ‘Finalize Pre-Registration for Summer
Recreation’ at the top of the page. Your email and name will prepopulate based on your account. Select the
children you are requesting to preregister, then select whether you plan to enroll your child in a full day or
traditional program. Select SUBMIT.

 

Your documentation has now been submitted and will be reviewed by the Recreation office. An email will be
