When all openings have been filled, applicants' names are placed on separate Wait Lists for boys and girls, by session, in the order in which they are received. You can add your child’s name to a Wait List via the Registration link. There is a $10 fee for each Wait List submission, which will be credited back to your account if your child gets into camp.
Some common Wait List questions...
How often do you get cancellations?
Some years we get a lot of cancellations, other years none. The cancellations are random and happen for a variety of reasons- an injury, change in a family's schedule, etc. We get cancellations anytime. They may happen two months out, or even two days before camp starts.
What are my chances of getting in?
Unfortunately, this is impossible for us to predict. Generally speaking, it's not necessarily how far down the list you are that determines your chances of getting in, but rather how long you can wait it out. The longer your child can stay on the list, the better his/her chances of getting in. When we get a late cancellation, we often find that parents have moved forward with other plans for their kids. At that point, we start working our way down the wait list to find the one child who is still available. That being said, if there is another camp that your child would like to attend, and there is a time crunch to sign up for that camp, then we suggest that you go ahead with those alternate plans, just to be safe.
When do you see movement on the Wait Lists?
There is generally a lot of movement on the Wait List following the open day of registration. Some families realize they signed up for the wrong camp. Other kids cancel when they find out their buddy didn't get in. The next time we typically see movement is at the end of May. June 1st is the tuition payment deadline, so if parents need to cancel, they will often do it just before this deadline. However, no matter when the cancellations happen, please know that we will always try to fill the spot, even if we're 24 hours out!
