How to Register

Starting March 5th (MPNCC members) and March 19th (non-members), 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.

Camp registrations will be accepted in-person, by mail, or over the phone. The phone will be very busy and calls will be answered in the order in which they are received. Please do not leave voice mails. Mail-in registrations will be processed upon receipt, not by postmark date.

NEW THIS YEAR: Full payment is due with registration. Payments can be made online via our web site, or by check. (Please do not mail cash.) There will be a computer set up at the Nature Center to accept online payments for in-person registrations. All payments are considered donations and are non-refundable unless camp is filled or cancelled by us.
