Waitlist Information

To ensure safety and the optimal camper experience, Registration will close once we hit maximum capacity. At that time, the waitlist will be made available on our website.

We encourage all campers to sign up for the waitlist. The waitlist is available on a first come, first serve basis. As spots become available, campers at the top of the waitlist will be given further instructions via email on how to submit their forms and complete payment. You will have 7 calendar days to complete both steps before you forfeit the opportunity to register. Waitlist spots are non-transferable.
