How do I register for camp?

All registration for 2019 Summer Camps will be done online by clicking any of the "Register for 2018 Summer Camps!" buttons listed on the website (like the one below). You can register for any and every camp, all from the same place.

*Payment: You can pay for camps online via credit card or by selecting the "Pay by Check" option. Regardless of which payment option you choose, all registration information will be collected online. If you choose the 'Pay by Check' option, payment should be sent immediately.   If payment is not received within 10 days, we reserve the right to cancel the registration. Acceptance into the camp is on a 'first come, first serve' basis, therefore if the camp is filled before your payment is received, you will be put on a waitlist.
