We recognize that navigating this year’s many unknowns is difficult for families. Our cancellation policy is designed to provide flexibility in the coming months – families will receive a full refund, minus a $50 administration fee, for any cancellation made 28 days or more before the start of camp. Please review our full cancellation policy carefully before registering.

*We follow an application to register process – families apply to register a camper and after brief review, we’ll send you an email to confirm your acceptance or follow up with some additional questions.
*Please note: We offer pre-registration to returning campers before this public registration date. Therefore, we’re not able guarantee availability at open registration. However, we encourage you to sign up to waitlists! We typically see some turnover before and during camp, and we’d love to let you know if a spot opens up.
