Should a particular age group exceed the number of new registrants than there is space for, on January 26, 2022, Township staff will randomly select registrants up to the maximum number of participants allowed in each camp group.  If the camp group is full, your registration will be placed on the waiting list.  If space becomes available, a confirmation letter will be emailed and your deposit check will be cashed.  Should space not be available, you will receive your uncashed deposit check via mail along with a letter stating your position on the waiting list.  Camp applications will not be accepted by Township staff or entered into the lottery without all proper information (Birth Certificate, Proof of Residency and Deposit Check).
