Registration & Info

Yes. If you need to arrange to send them with somebody else, we will have all the information we need to accommodate that request.

Yes. We will have staff to facilitate, but these camps require an assigned caregiver who is also a primary or secondary contact on their camp form.

No, but each camper must have a completed set of forms before registration can be processed.

Discounts for members and scholarship holders will be applied AFTER the booking request and BEFORE payment is processed.

Cancellations must be requested 48 hours ahead the camp start date and there will be a $15 processing fee.

You will receive a reminder email 10 days prior to your camp date with instructions about what to bring, drop-off, pickup and what to expect. If you aren’t contacted 10 days prior to your camp date, please contact us.

Campers participating in camps that don’t allow caregivers to accompany them are meant to focus on socialization with peers and personal development. Outside distractions from family can often trigger separation anxiety in campers.

Apply via bookeo. Criteria 1: 1 per camper per summer, select which camp. Criteria 2: Must have transportation. Criteria 3: Must have completed camp forms.

Register for additional days of these camps through the same process on Bookeo. Each additional day requires its own booking although each camper will only need to complete their forms once.
