Parents/caregivers will be able to complete and submit a brief pre-screening application ON-LINE* beginning Friday, June 3rd.  All pre-screening forms will be processed based on the time-stamp in which they were submitted.  If you wish to enroll your son/daughter in a second session of camp you will need to fill out a SECOND pre-screening application form.  Rgistration will close on Friday, June 10th. at 4:00 p.m.  From there, all successful applicants will be contacted by end of day on Monday, June 13th. and will have until 1:00 a.m. on Friday, June 17th. to complete and submit a FULL application which will also be available on-line.  If the full application is not completed by the June 17th. deadline then the applicant will forfeit his/her spot and that camper slot will go to the next eligible camper on the wait list. (*If you do not have access to a computer, please contact Sandy at 902-242-2019>)

Please make sure to read the following BEFORE STARTING THE PRE-SCREENING FORM.

- Leave yourself 10 - 15 minutes to complete the pre-screening form.

- There is NO option to save the application once you start, please make sure you are able to complete it in full - partially completed applications will not be considered. This form must be submitted NO LATER THAN June 10th. at 4:00 p.m. * If you wish to enroll your son/daughter in a second session of camp you will need to fill out the Pre-Sceening application form a second time.

We expect the camp sessions to fill up very quickly as there are limited spots available.  All pre-screening forms are time-stamped based upon arrival and processed in that order.  Because of the high volume of people interested in this program we cannot hold spots.  Completing a pre-screening form does not necessarily guarantee you a spot; you will be contacted by the end of day on June 13th. regarding the status of your application.
