The Parks Department provides the below tips on its website:
- Your child must be between the ages of 6 and 13 by the first day of camp. The first day of camp is Monday, July 9, 2018.
- We only allow one registration at one site. Please ensure you follow this rule. If you register at more than one, your child may be disqualified.
- If you have more than one eligible child, you should register them together on a single application. If you do, your children will be selected for the same summer camp together, rather than apart.
- Rank your choice of Regular Day (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm) and Extended Day (Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm) sessions, and your preference will be noted in the system. Not all sites have both sessions.
Lottery winners will be notified the week of March 11 and must register in person by March 17 at the center where their child will be attending camp. You will also be required to pay a $100 deposit at that time.
Good luck to the applicants!
