Apex Partners with ePACT

As a licensed childcare provider, the State of Colorado requires Apex to collect extensive health and emergency information on each camper. As a result, Apex partners with a third party, ePACT, to secure digital, confidential, and HIPPA-compliant information about your child.

ePACT collects this information from you through its online portal, which streamlines the process. Submitting this information is mandatory and must be completed to attend camp.

What is ePACT? ePACT is an online network where you can securely add, manage, and share your child’s key health and emergency contact details with us. Learn more about ePACT at epactnetwork.com.

Why are we using ePACT?

  • Saves you time: You only need to input your information once into ePACT. Next time, you’ll only need to review the information, taking less than a minute.
  • Improved privacy and security: Paper forms can be lost or misplaced. ePACT’s privacy and security measures exceed those of online banks, and they are HIPPA-compliant.
  • Peace of mind: ePACT makes it easy for you to share health and emergency contact details so we can provide the best support for your child. Plus, you can update this anytime, and we will automatically receive those new details.

Can my child still attend if I did not fill out ePACT? Your child cannot attend Apex out-of-school days or summer camp without the online paperwork and attachments completed and submitted through ePACT. If you come to drop off on the first day of camp with incomplete paperwork, your child will not be able to stay, and your spot will be forfeited, with no refund or credit, since your space has been secured.
