Special Notes:
1. There will be NO afternoon session on Fridays (therefore All Day camp ends at 12pm and PM only campers do not report)
2. All Day camp is now restricted to ages 8 and up!
3. If any registrant combines both AM & PM of SWIM CAMP enrollments for the same week, the entire registration could be forfeit! For example: If the ALL DAY option is unavailable, you cannot create an all day schedule by selecting AM Swim & PM Swim.
