Registration Instructions

Registration for summer programs will be completed in three (3) steps. Completion of ALL three steps is required for a student’s participation in any summer program. The full process is required to be completed within two (2) weeks of completing Step One.
STEP 1: Pay using the payment portal to secure your student’s spot.
STEP 2: Complete the full online application and required online forms.
STEP 3: Download and complete the Medical Form and upload required documentation.

STEP 1: Pay and secure spot

Families can quickly secure their students’ spot in a selected program and weeks by paying up front using our online payment portal. The payment portal presents program-specific options and asks for basic student details and custodial parent or legal guardian contact information.

Need to register for multiple weeks? Before proceeding to checkout, families can “continue shopping” and select additional weeks to add as needed – no need to pay one week at a time.

Multiple students? The current system can only take one student’s information at a time. Please only complete one student’s registration per order or transaction in order to prevent registration errors.

Upon completion, families will receive an automatic email with your receipt, six-digit Order Number, and an outline of the next steps.

BEFORE starting this step, please note the following:

  • Complete STEP ONE and note the six-digit Order Number on your Order Confirmation/Receipt email. If multiple orders were placed for the same student, please use the initial order confirmation number.
  • Estimated completion time will be 5-10 minutes.

STEP 2: Online App plus Forms

After securing their student’s spot in a program, families will complete the online application portion of the registration process. The application requests the student’s personal and academic details, parent or legal guardian information, and other additional details relevant to the student’s application.

The online application also displays the following forms for a custodial parent or guardian’s review, acknowledgement, and agreement:

  • Program Rules and Guidelines
  • COVID Liability Waivers
  • General Permissions

This step only has to be completed ONCE per summer. Additional program registrations will be connected to a student’s application.

STEP 3: Medical Form plus Upload

Does NOT require immunization or shot records

The Medical Form packet includes three (3) forms – Form 1A: Treatment Consent and Liability Release (*required); Form 1B: Allergies, Restrictions, and Medications (if applicable); and Waiver of Health Insurance (if applicable). Families will download and complete the Medical Form and upload the following paperwork using our secure Box upload portal:

  • Completed Medical Forms 1A and 1B
  • Copy of a parent or guardian’s Driver’s License or state-issued ID
  • Copy of insurance card covering the student OR completed Waiver of Health Insurance Form (if applicable)

Scans or photos taken with a cell phone are acceptable as long as all details are clear and legible.

Important: Our office does NOT recommend emailing or faxing any medical form or related paperwork due to security concerns with these systems.

This step only has to be completed ONCE per summer. Additional program registrations will be connected to a student’s application.

Post-Registration Details

The FULL registration process (all 3 steps) is required to be completed within a two-week period.

Incomplete or Inactive Registrations

After the two-week period, incomplete registrations or registrations without active progress toward completion will receive an Action Required email with a reminder to complete the registration process, remit any missing paperwork, or request an extension.

Extensions may be requested by email at Please include the student’s full name and Order Number when making an extension request.

Attention: A late fee ($20) will be due prior to admission if a student’s application is not completed or after three (3) weeks of inactivity, unless an extension is requested.
