Registration & Payment Policies

We have an online registration process to simplify things and to conserve paper. We hope that you find this process easy and efficient. In order for your registration to be complete, at the end of the registration process you will be asked to pay online via ACH Debit (echeck) a required deposit ($400 for each Day Camp and Leadership Training registration, $400 per two-week session of Adventures and Arts, $200 for each one-week registration for Day Trekkers).

Once you have completed registration, you will receive a confirmation email from the camp office explaining the status of your registration.  Your camper(s) will not be enrolled in camp until we have received your required deposit and have confirmed availability.  Once your camper(s) enrollment is confirmed, you will be able to log in to your account and click the Forms & Documents button to view and download all of the necessary forms that we still need you to complete. From your account page, you can also upload a photo of your camper, view and change your current registration status, make changes to your contact information, and more. Please contact Denise at the camp office (781-314-0994) if you have any questions.
NOTE: There is an additional payment option where families can pay their bill by VISA, Mastercard, Discover or American Express. Simply click the credit card button below, select "make a payment", and select "summer program." will charge you a fee of 2.99% of the balance charged as a convenience fee for this service.
