By registering for our classes, you agree to our policies regarding refunds, make-ups, safety, illness, and more.  Read them here.

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. 

 

Information about Fall 2016 Sessions

Fall 2016 Registration is now open!  See below for a quick list of the classes that will be offered.  Read Fall class descriptions/dates/prices and get links to register here.  Or, if you already know which classes you want, go straight to our registration system

Most of our Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday classes will run in two fall sessions, Fall Session I in September-October and Fall Session II in November-December (with some Fall II classes starting in very late October).  Because of the Jewish holidays, our Monday, Tuesday, and some Friday classes will run in one longer session from September through December with a break for much of October. 

You may register for one or both sessions. Please be aware that our Fall Session II classes often full up early, since many people register for both fall sessions at once.
