Important 2016 Summer Camp Registration Info…

  • Several changes have come with the release of the 2016 Summer Camp Registration information. As we kick off the registration season at Hillyer on January 31, we wanted to simplify the timeline in order for families with children and youth to better plan their summer and fee payment schedule.
  • Each youth will be awarded a $100 scholarship from Hillyer towards their total 2016 camp fees. In order to receive this scholarship, you must register through Hillyer with the following guidelines:
    • Thursday, March 10: Early Bird Deadline
      • In order to get the early bird pricing, all fees must be paid in full to Hillyer by this date.
    • Friday, April 29: Last Day for Refunds
      • After April 29, no refunds will be issued. Prior to April 29, you can be refunded minus a $100 penalty from the region ($50 for weekend camps). Registrations using the YES Fund will be responsible for paying back the refund penalty to Hillyer.
  • This year, your youth will not be registered with the camp until your full fee payment has been recorded at Hillyer. We are ready and available to answer questions, address concerns, and assist with YES Fund Scholarships.
  • The Yes Fund is a need-based event scholarship available through application for Hillyer members. With the changes in fees, the YES Fund will not cover refund penalties or the $25 fee up-charge to registrations past March 10.
  • Hillyer provides transportation to camps with 4 or more youth registered. Transportation is first come, first serve and will be finalized by May 15. After May 15, youth will only be able to be added as space allows. Otherwise, youth are responsible for their own transportation.
  • If you have a question or concern, please ask!! Communication up front with Catherine or Donna Moore is encouraged! Communication will help us help you have a fun and enriching camp season!
