What happens after I make full payment (tuition and/or supply fee) ?

You will receive an automatic confirmation e-mail upon completion of your registration and a more detailed camp confirmation within one week. Please make sure your confirmation matches with your records and that you have signed up for the correct days or weeks, as we cannot refund for errors in planning. Please contact our office if you need help. If you do not receive a confirmation, please log into your account to review details and ensure that your registration is complete (it will guide you through any mandatory forms). If you do not receive the auto-confirmation e-mail directly after registration, it means that there was probably some issue and you are not registered so PLEASE contact us, so we can help.
