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 registration. You are placed on the wait list in the order that you registered and we will contact you if you are next in line for a spot. Some wait lists are very long and a spot is not guaranteed to open up. For summer camp, however, each year we invite all people on the wait list 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.
