Once we have received your registration and deposit you will be sent a confirmation email to the email address you entered with your registration with important camp information and a receipt of your purchase.
The camp I am interested in is sold out. Do you keep a waiting list?
Yes. If the camp you want is full, when you try to register, you will receive a message that you have been placed on a waiting list. If space becomes available, you will be contacted to let you know you have been added to that camp roster. At any time, you can email us at email@example.com to check your status.
