Wait list means that we are currently full for that session. You are welcome to sign up for the wait list, but a spot will only open up if someone else cancels their camp registration. You are placed on the waitlist in the order that you registered and we will contact you if you are next in line for a spot for camp. Some waitlists are very long and you may not receive a spot in camp this summer. However, we will invite all people on the waitlist to a Pre-Registration Party in December so that they will be able to register for next year’s summer camp before the general registration opens in January.
