After registration for select camps, parents will receive an invitation from ePACT via email, please make sure you have an accurate email address in your registration account and double check spam folders. All forms need to be completed and uploaded to ePACT prior to the first day of camp. If this is not completed, your child may not be allowed to attend camp.  Safety is our main priority, please communicate any medical or special accommodations before the start of camp.
