Each year upwards of 1000 campers register for camp.  Each registration is processed manually by Registration Services staff.  Due to this volume of registrations Registration Services’ has a strict Follow Up Policy for collecting payment and missing information.  When you receive our call and/or email, please contact us within the stated time periods or your camper may lose their space.

  1. The first follow-up will be a phone call asking you to call Registration Services regarding your camp registration or financial assistance application within 24 hours. We will also send an email with the details of the reason for follow-up.
  2. If we haven’t heard from you within 24 hours our last attempt to follow-up with you will be a phone call.  This will provide another 24 hours to respond.
  3. If we do not hear from you again, we will assume you are no longer interested in registering for camp.
  4. If parents respond after the stated time period has ended your camper will be placed at the back of the registration queue.
    • Registration Services keeps record of all attempts for follow-up.

Camp Thunderbird is proud to reach our full capacity each summer.  When a camp reaches capacity, a camper will be added to the wait list and you will be sent a wait list confirmation.

If a space becomes available we will contact waitlisted campers as follows:

  • More than 5 days before camp starts: we will contact campers in order of the waitlist, providing a 24 hour window to respond.  If we do not hear from you we will assume you do not want the space.
  • Less than 5 days before camp starts: we will contact campers in order of the waitlist, providing a 12 hour window to respond.  If we do not hear from you we will assume you do not want the space.
  • 2 or less days before camp starts: we will contact campers in order of the waitlist, providing a 2 hour window to respond.  If we do not hear from you we will assume you do not want the space.
