So... You’re on our waiting list. Here’s what you need to know.

  1. Where are we on the list?
  2. Am I automatically put on the waiting list for either session regardless of which session I requested.
  3. When will you let us know if we are in? Do people really get in?
  4. What happens to my deposit while we are on the list?
  5. What are the odds my child will get in?

1. Where are we on the list?
As we receive many applications simultaneously, the waiting list is not an exact science. We therefore cannot always give you exact information about where you are on the list. We will provide the best information available at the time of your inquiry as to your relative position.

2. Am I automatically put on the waiting list for either session regardless of which session I requested.
No! You need to let us know that both sessions are acceptable and we will put you on both lists.

3. When will you let us know if we are in? Do people really get in?
As soon as we know there is a space available we will give you a call. We don’t call if there is no change, however, there are three times that cancellations and changes are more frequent. First, at the end of January when families receiving scholarship determine that they are still unable to send their child. Second, in March when another payment is due and then April 1st when the final payment is due.

4. What happens to my deposit while we are on the list?
Your credit card won't be charged until we have a space available. If a space becomes available we will contact you. If you accept the space we will charge your credit card at that time. This means that there is NO financial risk whatsoever to be on our waiting list.

5. What are the odds my child will get in?
It’s hard to predict what will happen that would make people decide to not send their child. Some of the possible reasons could be Illness, financial change, change in vacation plans, job transfers, and many others. That said, there are always between 10 and 25 spaces that become available once the camp has filled. There is no predicting if these spaces will be in the age group or session that you are waiting for. There is no risk to be on the waiting list. However, if you do make alternate plans please let us know so we can keep the list accurate.
