How to Register – Step by Step

Step 1: Create a J Account

Online Registration for Your Convenience

Program registration is by the week. During registration, you will be able to select all the weeks and programs that you would like your camper(s) to attend. Registration is completed one camper at a time. If you have additional campers, they can be added before payment is made. Online registration and all required forms must be submitted before your child’s first week of camp. The last day to register for camp is the Monday before each weekly camp session.

To register, you must first create an account in our system.
