Choose your 

program site

Based on your child's grade, choose the program site best suited for them. There are a couple of options for most age groups. Differences between sites include program specialties and housing. 


Choose your date

Once you know the site your child wants to attend, pick the date that works best for you.

NOTE: you absolutely can change the date if something comes up. Just contact our Registrar, Jessica, and we'll help you out!



We use UltraCamp for registration. The first time you set it up, you fill in a lot of information - contact, medical, emergency contact. Every time after that, you just update information. It's pretty intuitive, but if you have any trouble, contact our Registrar, Jessica. We're here to help!
