Registration for non-members will follow on March 15.

Reservations will be accepted Monday through Friday during Center hours (9 am to 4 pm) on a first-come, first-served basis. Before registering, please make sure that your child meets the age requirement for the camp s/he wants to attend. NO exceptions.

Once registered, your camp payment must be received within 3 to 5 days—paid online, or by mailing a check with a copy of the info. sheet—or your reservation will be yielded to the wait list. Payments are considered donations and are non-refundable unless camp is filled or cancelled by us.
