How does summer registration work?
What’s new with our registration process & policies?
Due to the high volume of folks trying to register and make payments simultaneously, summer camp registration will now be a 2-step process. Each family will complete an application on a first come, first served basis. We will then email you offering you the weeks in which there is space available. You will then be asked to complete a second form confirming your summer schedule and making the $85/child registration payment. MORE DETAILS ON THIS PROCESS BELOW!
Registration will take place at NOON on February 14th instead of midnight! Wahoo! No more staying up late to try and get camp weeks!
Families whose child is new to spilled milk and has not yet been to kindergarten will be limited to 4 weeks of camp. Our programming makes for a very fast-paced and busy environment, and we believe that it’s best to ease children into this type of environment.
We will now be imposing a limit to the number of weeks that a family can drop once you have accepted/confirmed a summer schedule. Between registering and the drop deadline of May 4th, a family may only drop 2 weeks per child. After the May 4th deadline, dropping weeks without financial responsibility will be contingent upon our ability to fill your spot with another family on the waitlist!
The registration fee is now $85. This amount includes a camp t-shirt AND is eligible for a partial refund of $50 applied to your final month’s tuition IF NO CHANGES ARE MADE TO YOUR CHILD’S SUMMER SCHEDULE AFTER SUBMITTING YOUR CONFIRMATION FORM!
Applications from families enrolling more than one child will be considered in order of the timestamp on your FIRST application ONLY IF YOU ARE ENROLLING BOTH CHILDREN IN THE EXACT SAME SCHEDULE. If you are enrolling both children but with different schedules, then your applications will be considered separately.
A step-by-step guide to operation: registration!
Here are the steps to register: (*PLEASE NOTE: Don't attempt to register from a mobile device. We apologize for the inconvenience.)
Read EVERYTHING on the "General Info and Fees" and "Summer Camp FAQ" pages.
Click on the "OPERATION: Registration 2019" button on the home page. You'll be taken to the online application page.
Fill out everything on the application form, select the weeks for your child, agree to the listed terms, and hit submit! You'll know it went through because you'll be redirected to a page that tells you we’ve received your application.
Once we receive your application, we’ll send you an email confirming the weeks that you made it into, no later than February 21st. (Why does it take this long to confirm your enrollment, you might ask? While we absolutely offer spots on a first-come, first-served basis, we go through applications manually, to prevent mistakes. We appreciate your patience.) The confirmation email will contain a link for you to accept the weeks you want and pay the $85 registration fee. If you are unable to make the payment online, you MUST email us immediately to let us know how you intend to pay (mailing a check, bringing payment in person, etc.) If we don't hear from you within 24 hours, we will cancel your registration.
If a week is full you will be placed on the waiting list in order of the timestamp on your application form. Your confirmation email will include this information: which weeks you made it into, along with where you are on the waiting list for the weeks you didn’t make it into.
On Saturday, May 4th from 10a until 2p (you can come any time within that window- plan to stay for 20 minutes or so,) we will host a MEET-AND-GREET at our facility. All enrolled families are invited to come meet the directors and staff, learn about our program, turn in forms and confirm your child's summer schedule. This is also the deadline to make any changes or cancellations.
If you do not come to the Meet-and-Greet, we will email you by May 5th to confirm your child's enrolled sessions, and to give you important info so you can be ready for the start of camp. You must respond to our email no later than May 7th, confirming your schedule. If we do not hear back from you by May 7th, your registration will be cancelled. (We appreciate your adherence to this. With all the awesome things we're taking care of to get ready for summer camp, we can't afford to spend our time chasing after people. Thanks!)
You'll receive your tuition bill(s) as follows: Enrolled in May weeks? We'll bill you for them on May 1st. June weeks will be billed on June 1st, etc.
