TIPS FOR REGISTRATION

  • Registration closes the Tuesday before each session at 11:59 PM.
  • Register for the grade your camper is entering in the fall.
  • When you register, only the first date for each week will show up on the calendar. Don't worry, you are signing up for the entire week! 
  • Please be patient with our website! We recommend using a desktop or laptop and using Chrome or Firefox. You may have to refresh several times.
  • When you register, even if you have an account on our website, you may have more success if you check out as a guest.
  • If you continue to have trouble, we will do our best to assist you by phone or email, but we may be experiencing high call volume. Again, we appreciate your patience. 
  • If you are purchasing lunches, please add them to your cart at the time of purchase and select your options when entering your roster information.
  • Please read all policies and procedures in the Camp Handbook (linked at the top of this page) before registering. Also please note the registration policies at the bottom of the page. 
  • After you complete your registration, make sure to print/save the order confirmation page that pops up! The dates you register for will NOT be included in your automated email confirmation.
