Read before Registering

  • A camp or class is referred to an an “event” in our registration system.
  • You will fill your shopping cart with all camps and classes for all family members. For example, if you have 2 entering camp K-5 and one teen camper, you would add quanty 2 in K-5 camp, add to cart, return to events list, choose quantity 1 teen camp and add to cart. (note, just putting a quanity in won’t add it to the cart, you need to add each event to the cart then return to events list).  There is no “add all to cart” so make sure you add each event (any quanity of that event) to the cart individually. 
  • Once you have added all to the cart, you then proceed to registration.
  • The first event will ask for informaiton related to ALL campers, such as parent name and related questions.  You will only need to fill this out once.  It will also ask for the first camper’s info for that camp/class. THEN for all the other event spots, you will fill out information only related to the camper in that event.
  • Once you are done and submit registration, you will receive an online and email invoice.  With the invoice #, you will either pay online wiht MuniciPAY, or send/drop off a check along with a copy of the invoice within 5 days. 
  • Please make sure the medical form is also submitted wihtin 5 days and include the invoice #. 
  • If you decide to add additional classes after you register, you may submit another registration at a different time. (For example, if you decide to add an enhancement program that you weren’t sure about when you first registered).
