This is when all other campers including family members will be eligible to register. This delay in registration dates is to allow returning campers an equal opportunity to return to camp in 2020.
We are excited to share that registration for 2020 Summer Camp will be done fully online! Online registration means no waiting, you can register and know your camper has their spot right away!
