What happens if we apply after March 15?
- Applications of adult volunteers and their children are accepted anytime, as long as we have room in camp.
- Girls’ applications received after March 15 will be added to the waitlist of those who didn’t make it into camp in the lottery, on a first-come, first-served basis based on session and age group availability.
