    READ ALL DETAILS BELOW.  CAMP REGISTRATION IS VIA REVTRAK --- A DIFFERENT SYSTEM FROM THE SCHOOL-YEAR REGISTRATION.

    Camp is only open to students who pre-register by the deadline.   No additional registrations, including wait list options, will be accepted.

    ** For best results, do NOT register via a mobile device. ** If you do not receive an emailed confirmation after completing your child’s registration, YOUR CHILD IS NOT REGISTERED.  In the rare occurrence that the system does not accept your registration and you need to begin your registration over again (remember, if you do not receive an e-mail confirmation, your child is NOT registered), the online registration system requires you to wait 60-minutes before attempting registration again.  You may be able to expedite this process by changing browsers or deleting your cookies.  ** For best results, do not register via a mobile device. **

    - Call the RegWerks support line at 888-847-9470

    What do I need to register?

    - Parent names, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, driver's license number(s) 

    - Emergency contact name(s), phone number(s)

    - Debit/credit card (if selecting camp with an additional fee)

    Why do you ask for information that's already been provided on the B/ASP registration form?

    B/ASP student files are housed at the student's regular school.  Camps are held at different sites across the district.  Therefore, full student files are not readily available to camp staff.  The information that's requested on the camp registration form is basic information that's necessary in the event of an emergency, to ensure the safety of your child.   

    How are camp locations selected?

    For individual day camps, the B/ASP attempts to offer at least one camp on opposite sides of the District as a convenience to parents.  However, camp locations largely depend on available building space (oftentimes teachers are continuing to work in their classrooms on professional development days); building construction/maintenance; location of available building space to playground and building entry; program enrollment; and supply distribution.

    Space is limited for each camp and spaces are filled on a first-registered basis.  While this day camp is included with all regular tuition (exception: Wednesday AM Only; students may attend at a rate of $32.00), space is limited based on available building space and staffing availability.  Some camps do require payment of an additional off-site or on-site field trip fee.  Additional fees are due at the time of registration and are non-refundable/non-transferable.  See individual camp descriptions below for details.
