 Five ways we are simplifying Camp Registration!

1. Minimum deposit of only $10 for full day camps. Our full day camps require an easy to pay $10 deposit to reserve a space. All our other camps require payment in full to register.

2. Search and enroll by Age (Your child's age as of August 31, 2019.). We are registering by age and not grade for DAY CAMPS. Community Center & Hargraves are ages 5 – 11 years old, and Teen Camp* is ages 12-13 years old. *There is an exception that youth currently in 6th grade and only 11 years old, will be permitted to enroll in Teen Camp.

3. Interpretation will be available March 10 during camp registration from 8 a.m.–12 p.m. in Burmese, Mandarin Chinese, Karen and Spanish. 

4. Queue-it, a virtual waiting room software has been arranged for our online customers for the first day of registration on March 10, in order to minimize any temporary delays and web site overloads.
