No refund will be made in case of dismissal.
Wait List Policy
Many of our sessions fill very quickly so early registration is recommended. Priority will be given to returning campers until September 14th. If we receive your application after a session has filled, you may enroll in another session and be placed on the wait list for the session of your choice. You may change sessions, if a space becomes available; there is no charge for changing sessions. To be added to the wait list, we must receive a completed camper application and deposit. The deposit is not processed until a camper accepts the space and is enrolled.
After your camper is enrolled, the following medical forms also must abe completed by their corresponding due dates.
