The time to register for summer camp is upon us! Monday, April 3, at 9:00 AM, registration for the Town of Wallkill Summer Day Camp will open. Follow these helpful tips and instructions to ensure you are ready to submit an application for your children.
But firstly, how long will it take to register my children?
The application process takes about ten minutes per child. You will need to apply for each child separately. Once complete, you should receive an email confirming your application submission.
***IMPORTANT*** Although you have submitted your application, you are not done. The confirmation email you receive will remind you to submit four additional forms: an authorized grown-up pick-up list, a record of your children's immunizations, a health history form, and our COVID-19 waiver. These will be found on your parent portal, the link to which will be in your confirmation email.
Is there anything new with registration this year?
Yes! This year, there will be a non-refundable $25 registration fee that will apply towards your children's summer camp tuition.
If you are a parent or guardian looking to re-enroll your children, your login and password will be the same as last year. If you are having trouble remembering what email you used or your password, you can call the office to reset it.
What items will I need to register my children?
