For those of you who forgot or weren’t able to register for our deepest discount during the last three days of each camp session, it’s time to put it on your calendar that our next best rate, still with substantial discounts — Early Bird Registration — opens up at midnight on October 1st. To be super clear about timing and make this easiest for you, that means if you stay up past 11:59 p.m. on Sept 30th you can register starting one minute later, at midnight!
Now, Early Bird Registration will be open until December 1st at 11:59 p.m. but…there’s reason to go ahead and register really early — the October 1st at midnight kind of early — because the first three registrants will receive a $50 gift certificate to their camp session store account!
A discount and a bonus? Not bad! That’s reason enough to do a late-night countdown on September 30th.
Early bird or Johnny-come-lately?
As I mentioned, we already had a special registration for current (2014) families only, where they could register during the three final days at the end of each session this summer.
As you can imagine, with the large discounts in this incentive, camp families really loved it and camp nearly filled up — fast! First Term has a few spaces left, so if anyone wants First Term they should act as soon as possible when Early Bird registration opens October 1st.
Second Term has more spaces than First Term still available, but it isn’t far behind in nearing full-enrollment status.
Mini Camp is often a little — and I mean just a little — more flexible since many campers are coming for their very first time. But it is also enormously popular, and not advisable to wait if you want your littlest campers to experience Camp Alleghany next summer.
Now, there is no Early Bird rate for Mini Camp (sorry) but registration for Mini Camp does open October 1st as well and it is advisable to register early.
We want everyone who wants to be at camp to get a spot, but at the same time, space is limited by our program capacity. So if camp is on your daughter’s must-do list for summer 2015 (and we hope it is!) by all means, plug October 1st into your calendar and register your daughter asap during Early Bird (and don’t be a sad Johnny-come-lately!)
Last year we went to a Wait List before the new year for one of the sessions, and a few weeks later all three sessions had a wait list. So take out that smartphone calendar right now and plug in a reminder to register for Mini Camp and term Camp starting October 1st.
We can’t wait to see you next year at camp — in just 269 days! 🙂
