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. (All applications from families enrolling more than one child will be considered in order of the timestamp on your FIRST application). 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 $75/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 April 28th, a family may only drop 2 weeks per child. After the April 28th deadline, the only way to drop weeks without financial responsibility will be via a system of finding a family to replace you. More details on this later!
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 2018" 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 confirmation page.
Once we receive your application, we’ll send you an email confirming the weeks that you made it into, no later than February 21st. That email will contain a link for you to accept the weeks you want and pay the $75 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.
On Saturday, April 28th 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 1st 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 5th, confirming your schedule. If we do not hear back from you by May 5th, 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 June weeks? We'll bill you for them on June 1st. July weeks will be billed on July 1st, and August weeks will be billed on August 1st.
Important tips to keep in mind:
If you have multiple children, you'll need to fill out a separate application for each child. We will consider all same-family applications based on the timestamp of your first application.
