Please note that unless specifically designated as a "drop-off class," all classes require that children be accompanied by a caregiver at all time


Log in to your Camp Minder Account (to check what you've already registered for, add a different credit card etc).
 
To see what you've already registered for, choose "Financial Management," be sure that the drop-down menu is set to the calendar year in which you took the classes (e.g. "2015" for Fall 2015 classes or "2016" for Winter 2016 classes) and then click on "View Statement."  This will open up a PDF that lists all enrolled classes and all financial transactions for that year.  You can adjust the year to see transactions from previous years.
