How do I register my child for Camp?
When do I register for Camp?
Registration for all sessions for the upcoming summer opens at the end of September. The exact enrollment time will be announced each year.
We immediately enroll returning campers from the date that registration opens until November 30 each year. Siblings of returning campers, campers who have taken years off, and campers switching sessions are all treated as returning campers for this purpose.
Families who were on the waitlist for the previous year need to fill out a new camper application in order to stay on the waitlist, but since we already have a deposit on file for them, no additional money needs to be sent.
For a one-week window after our application opens, we will accept applications from campers who have never been enrolled or on our waitlist. At the end of that period, these applications will be grouped by Side of Camp, Session, and Grade, placed in random order, and then put on their respective waitlists in that order, behind any campers who were on previous years’ waitlists and did not get in. After this one-week period each year, new applicants will be placed on their waitlists in the order they are received. We introduced this procedure for the first time in fall 2022 for the 2023 registration year. We believe this is a fairer and more orderly way for new applicants to get on the waitlist than a rush to hit reload on the day registration opens.
Is there a waitlist for Camp? How does it work?
When camp fills, separate waitlists are maintained for each side of camp, grade and session combination. All of the waitlists move at different speeds and, unfortunately, we are not able to predict accurately how quickly things will move.
For more information about the Waitlist, please visit the detailed Waitlist FAQ page and download Pigeon Wing Waitlist Article PDF that is included below.
To continue to hold your space on the waitlist for the next summer, ensure that you submit a new registration form each year, as outlined above, and your deposit will automatically be rolled over.
If you have questions about your child and their place on the waitlist, please contact the Office to find out the specific information relevant to your situation.
Can I sign up for the waitlist for multiple sessions?
Is a deposit required?
Yes, a deposit is required to register your child for Camp. This deposit is fully refundable while you are on the waitlist and the amount can be rolled over each year to keep your place and date on the waitlist. Once you are enrolled and off the waitlist, this deposit is applied towards Camp tuition.

How do I pay my deposit?
While completing the online registration form, as outlined above, you will be asked for the method by which you would like to pay both your deposit and tuition. Credit card, check and bank wire transfer are among the options available to you.
All payments are processed manually by our Finance Director, so you may notice a short delay between the registration submission and the funds being deducted from your account.

Is Financial Aid available?
Yes, families are able to apply for Financial Aid and can select this option during the registration process. If you indicate your interest in Financial Aid, we will reach out to you with further information about the Financial Aid application process.
The deadline for submission of the Financial Aid application and subsequent documents is February 1 each year and families are notified of the result by April.
