5101:2-18-03 Registration requirements for child day camps.

(A) Registration of child day camps with the Ohio department of job and family services (ODJFS) is required by sections 5104.21 and 5104.22 of the Revised Code.

(B) A person shall not operate a child day camp without annually registering with ODJFS unless the child day camp meets the exemption criteria in rule 5101:2-18-02 of the Administrative Code.

(C) The person operating a child day camp shall annually register the camp by completing the JFS 01258 "Child Day Camp Registration" (rev. 9/2015). The JFS 01258 shall be considered filed with ODJFS as of the date it is postmarked. A JFS 01258 received by means other than the postal service shall be considered filed when it is time and date stamped by ODJFS. A JFS 01258 submitted without complete and accurate information shall be amended by the child day camps and resubmitted to ODJFS with complete and accurate information.

(D) The submission of the JFS 01258 shall include the registration fee noted on the form. This fee is nonrefundable and nonreturnable.

(E) A child day camp administrator or a designated staff member shall provide the parents of each child who attends or participates in the child day camp with the telephone numbers of the county department of health and the public children services agency of the county in which the child day camp is located, and a statement that the parents may use these telephone numbers to make a complaint regarding the child day camp.

(F) If a child day camp that is required to register under section 5104.21 of the Revised Code fails to register with ODJFS or if a child day camp that files a registration form knowingly provides false or misleading information, the child day camp shall register correctly and pay a registration fee equal to three times the registration fee.

(G) Every owner of a registered child day camp shall register with ODJFS by March fifteenth of each year. This registration shall be effective for the period of March fifteenth through March fourteenth of the following calendar year. Registration of new child day camps issued after March fifteenth shall be effective from the date of registration through March fourteenth.
