Please register for classes at least 3 days before the class is scheduled to begin.

Will a class be canceled if not enough students enroll, and how will I find out?

If an activity doesn’t meet minimum enrollment, the program will be cancelled. You will receive an email within 3 days of the close of registration. Registration period ends 3 days prior to the start of the class.

How do I register for more than one participant online?

When you sign up your family, you will be prompted to add members to your account. You will add all of your family members who will or would want to participate in the summer program. When you click register for an activity, you click on one or more of your family members who would like to attend, then you continue. This feature allows you to register and to add to your check out cart.
