form must be completed in full. Select your camps by finding the appropriate week and then selecting
from the drop down box.
The non-refundable registration fee of $10 is payable once per child when you register, regardless of the

and are refundable up to one week before the start date of the camp. Enrollment will be accepted until
the start date of camp, or until the camp fills.
Some camps have discounted fees for the 2nd child in the same family. If that is the case, please register
the 2nd child for the camp fee marked “sibling rate”.
Children who are also enrolled in Summer in the Zone full day care will be picked up by the camp
instructors and taken to their specialty camp. The camp instructor will bring students back to Summer in
the Zone. Students who are attending a specialty camp on days that Zone students are on a full day field
trip will go to their camps; a Zone teacher will be on site to take care of the students who return to
Summer in the Zone for the rest of the day.
