Online registration for the summer camps will begin at 9 a.m. on March 11 and end at 11:59 p.m. on March 13. To ensure fairness, the registration will take place by lottery, which will randomly select applications from those who register.

  • Only one application per child will be accepted; multiple applications will disqualify you from the lottery.
  • There is no preferential treatment for siblings and/or past participants in our summer camp program.
  • Entry in the lottery requires a computer and an email address.
