How to Register
New in 2023: A lottery system for registration will open February 20 at 8am and close February 26 at 8pm. Each prospective camper’s information will need to be added to the lottery list for each individual camp session they are interested in attending.
Only sign up for the session(s) your child(ren) are able to attend. By signing up for the lottery, you are agreeing to enroll if selected. Selections will be generated randomly.
If your registration request is selected, you will receive an email in early March with instructions and a deadline for completing registration. Priority will be given to siblings applying for the same camp session but cannot be guaranteed. Individuals on the waitlist and those that do not get selected will be alerted by mid-March.
Registration by lottery will be employed to ensure equity of access for all interested participants, with the aim of reducing stress and the impact of technical issues, while increasing flexibility for families hoping to register. We strongly recommend that prospective participants enter the registration lottery at the beginning of the time window to enable time for any needed troubleshooting.
