The lottery opens on Monday, April 22, at 9:00 a.m. and closes on Friday, April 26, at 5:00 p.m.

If the camp is not full after April 26th at 5:00 p.m., all students who registered are guaranteed a spot in the camp and registration will remain open until all 20 spots are filled.

After the lottery, you will receive an email stating whether your student was selected by the random lottery or put on a waiting list. If your student is put on a waiting list, you will also receive further instructions.
