2017 SUMMER CAMP INFORMATION The 2017 Summer Camp Registration Form is now available below! See you soon!We are trying out registration on a Saturday this year and we will evaluate based on your feedback! Our 2017 registration will take place on SATURDAY, April 1, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to Noon at 412 Spencer Street, Syracuse, NY 13204
We are very excited and pleased with our 2017 summer offerings! As you can imagine there are many moving parts involved in our camp planning and we work hard to ensure everything comes together and minimal changes need to be made - however, this is not something we can guarantee. Aside from adding additional waivers to a few our camps - that will be collected at registration time -, we will hi-light changes/additions in yellow after our original publish date. So please, check back often. Changes/additions made after April 1st will be posted here, and you will receive an email if your child is registered for a camp affected by any such changes.
Please be sure to read all of our policies as we have made a few changes this year. Our main goal continues to be to offer a comprehensive range of safe, fun and affordable camps for everyone. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us. Your feedback and solutions are an essential component in our planning.Rest assured, we realize so many children are advanced in some way or another - intellectually, emotionally, athletically, socially, acting ability etc. however, policies are in place for several reasons and we must adhere to them. We ask that you please respect our age restrictions as well as all other policies and do not call directors, contractors or the main office to ask for exceptions to be made for your child. Please know that every effort is made to provide accurate information. However, in the event you find a typo(s), please be kind and drop us a line.

FULL Camps - Although we try, this page may not always contain the most up-to-date information as to when camps fill and may constantly be changing if spots become available again due to the nature of our participants busy schedules.
WAIT LIST OPPORTUNITIES If a program is full and you wish to wait list your child (age-appropriate only) you will have the opportunity to wait list with payment or without payment. Please note, on the first day of registration (April 1), the wait list order for all camps will be a lottery.
If you choose to wait list without payment and a spot becomes available, you will receive an email. You will have until the close of business on that day to come in and make the payment. If you do not come in that day, we will move to the next person on the list and you will be taken off the wait list.
If you choose to wait list with payment, the payment will be processed immediately and will be applied as space becomes available. You will receive an email with a receipt confirmation. Once you have been accepted in camp and an email receipt has been sent, the refund policy does apply. If a spot does not become available, the money will remain on your account unless you request a refund, in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Please indicate REFUND REQUEST in the subject line.∙ Refunds will be honored if requested in writing at 3 weeks prior to the start of camp (15 business days).∙ All refunds will be paid by the City of Syracuse via check made payable to the name on the original registration form, and could take up to 4-6 weeks to receive.∙ Prorated refunds may be given after a program has begun if written medical verification (from your primary physician) is received for injury or illness. A prorated refund will be based on the number of days left in the class upon receipt of your medical verification in our office.
