On Monday, May 10th at 12pm, the lottery will be completed and the registration system will randomly place campers in camps. Once a location is full, all remaining campers will be placed in order on the wait list. As soon as the lottery is complete, the system will send a confirmation email to everyone who registered informing them of the status of their registration. Your status will either say "Enrolled" or "Waitlist #." If your status is enrolled, parents/guardians will have until Saturday, May 15th at 1:00pm to make your payment and confirm registration. After that time your spot will be given to the next person on the waitlist. If you applied for and were approved for a scholarship, your payment will automatically be applied.
If camps still have spots available after the lottery is completed and all waitlist enrollees have been given a chance to claim any open lottery spots, the camp will be opened to the public for regular enrollment on a first come, first served basis beginning Monday, May 17th. Summer camp registration will conclude once designated slots are filled. No additional campers will be added once camp has started.

Our camps provide opportunities for children to disconnect from technology and become more physically active. Campers experience success and become more confident by participating in team and individual activities and develop a life skill and interest in something they had little to no experience in. In addition, our campers become more independent by learning to do things on their own all while improving their social skills and making lasting friendships.
Activities Your child will be engaged in a variety of physical and educational activities. Activities include arts and craft classes, sports clinics, fitness sessions, cultural and enrichment classes, games, and much more. (Due to COVID-19 precautions, campers will not go on field trips this summer.)
