Fantastic 4-H Registration Information

As counselors sign up, we will notify campers that they are officially registered and no longer on the wait list. Full payment is due by April 16 and failure to pay on time will result in the camper going back on the wait list. If we do not get enough counselors for the number of registered campers, your payment will be refunded in full. Please also make sure you register the correct gender. We have a separate sign up for boys and girls. Registration closes April 16, 2018.
