Join the Waitlist for In-Person Camp

If your preferred camp is already full, you can register your child for the camp's waitlist:

  • Payment is not taken at the time of joining the waitlist.
  • In the event a registered camper cancels their enrollment in a camp, we begin notifying waitlisted campers of the available spot (by phone and email) in the order in which they've joined the waitlist.

Camp Policies

Camper Age Policy

Enroll your child according to their age by the start of camp. Our programs are designed for the specified age groupings, and we want to ensure your child has the best experience possible.

Cancellation & Rescheduling Policy

  In-Person Camp
Cancellation Fee $50/camper
Rescheduling Fee $25/camper

 

Camps are refundable until seven (7) days prior to the start of that camp, less a cancellation fee. There will be no refunds within one (1) week of the camp.

There is a rescheduling fee for each instance of rescheduling a camp. You can reschedule a camp up to seven (7) days before the start of your original camp, if a spot is available. *If you reschedule within seven (7) days of the start of your camp, you are responsible for paying the full amount for the camp spot vacated, in addition to the camp spot you have rescheduled to.

Should a camp have insufficient enrollment, it will be cancelled four (4) weeks prior to the scheduled start date. In this event, a full refund will be made, or an opportunity to enroll in another camp—space permitting—will be provided.

Camper Forms & Waivers

We use CampDoc™ to collect all of our electronic camp waivers. Within a few days of registering your child in camp, you will receive an email notification from CampDoc™ with instructions on how to log in to their site and complete the required forms for your camper.

Forms must be completed online at least two (2) weeks before the first day of camp, but we recommend completing the forms soon as you receive the email. Your camper's spot is not secure until you have completed the CampDoc forms.
