The Last Minute Standby Program is designed for families who are looking for tuition assistance who may not qualify for our income based discounts. Often throughout the summer, we have spots that are unfilled in our camp sessions. We strive to fill those spots with campers whose families may not be able to afford our full tuition, and who are comfortable waiting until the last minute to see if there is space for them to attend camp. This program gives a 40% discount off of the usual session fee and is available to all day camp programs at all locations.
How it works: On Friday morning, we look at our registration for the week ahead and look for any unfilled spots. At that point we will contact our families who have expressed interest in attending as a Last Minute camper for the following week. We will give those families a heads up to let them know if there are openings. Between Friday morning and Sunday night at 7 pm, we will contact parents/guardians to offer them a spot at a 40% discount. You do not have to take the spot if you have made other plans. If there are multiple campers on the list for a certain opening, we will makes decisions based on many factors including who signed up first, the age of the camper compared to the age of the other kids in the group, how many other Last Minute spots that family has taken in that season, etc… In the case that there are many campers in line for a certain spot, you may be given a deadline as to when we need a reply.
How to register for a Last Minute spot: New families should create a log in and create a profile in our registration system for each child that they wish to register. New and returning families will both need to fill out all summer forms that they are prompted to fill out online including the health form and waivers. Once your forms are completed, you may email the office (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let us know which child/children you would like to put on the last minute list and which weeks you are interested in. You may choose several weeks if desired. No payment or deposit is required to put your name on the list. Payment will only be collected if you are offered and accept a spot.
