Camp registrations getting thick as maple syrup.

It’s time to get your early registrations for CDSS camps and special weeks in the mail. Steve Howe, our Director of Programs, has a few things to share.

Making maple syrup with the Howes

I know that it is almost spring! On Saturdays, my son Sam and I have been boiling maple sap (we are now at 2.5 gallons of syrup) and at work, camp registrations are coming in. Registrations are ahead of this time last year. Many people have used the new on-line registration system; it is quite simple, asking only name(s), week(s) and deposit(s). The other details (housing requests, etc.) will follow — for returning campers, we have old data.

Remember that CDSS does not use a first come/first serve system, but will have a lottery for programs that are oversubscribed by the processing date — and that date approaches for the mini courses.

There is still another week for the Weeks, but you had better get those registrations in!
